PAST: BOOK TALK: MON, Jan 9th at Busboys & Poets, 5th & K, 6:30pm
At Busboys & Poets new location, 5th & K St, NW at 6:30. Author Mark Morrison-Reed will discuss and sign "In Between: Memoir of an Integration Baby" In Between: Memoir of an Integration Baby gives voice to the unspoken story of those Afro Americans who were among the first to bring racial diversity to their neighborhood, school, church or workplace, to the increasing number of partners in interracial relationships and to those blessed with and yet struggling to raise multiracial children in a polarized world. It is a frank personal account of growing up black during the era of the civil rights movement. The author wrestles with racism, the death of Martin Luther King, black radicalism, his interracial family, and his experience as one of the first black Unitarian Universalist ministers. Please arrive early to ensure seating.
