The Autobiography of An Ex-Coloured Man Author:James Weldon Johnson Written and originally published in 1912, this book is about "The light-skinned Negro capable of slipping across the color-line unnoticed." A fascinating book.
I was quite surprised by this book. It was a very interesting glance into the early 1900s. I found myself feeling bad for the man. Between two diametrically opposing worlds. Extremely interesting slice of life.
