Marriage in Black and White

"It is time to let caution to the wind and to support without reservation black and white social intimacy. The case for black-white unions is fundamentally the case for America. The only alternative is the continuation of racism and its corollary of heightened conflict." Joseph R. Washington, Jr., unorthodox and consistently his own man within the black movement, in his fourth book examines the ultimate question of mutual acceptance of blacks and whites in intimate family relationships. Through a careful review of the historical data and the present attitudes of liberals, social scientists, and established religion, he discusses the problems of passing, the children of black-white marriages, and the folklore concepts of black-white marriage. His objective is not numbers of marriages nor the inherently demeaning concept of assimilation. An advocate of the celebration of variances, he is reaching for a society in which marriage in black and white is looked upon as a privilege.--From publisher description.
