White is a State of Mind

Author:Melba Pattillo Beals

She fell in love with a white man, and though adjusting to the North posed its own set of problems, she seems to have found the close equivalent of domestic bliss: "I began losing weight. I no longer craved junk food to fill the empty spot in my soul." But she avoided political activism at all costs. The Black Panthers; the free speech movement on several college campuses at the time-none of that attracted her. Little Rock had been enough. She settled into a private life of marriage, separation, welfare, and then divorce. Later, she claimed a new life as a journalist-making this an account of the fairly routine stuff of a black woman coming of age in the North.

After fifteen years, the last ten of which they spent locked up in solitary cells, the Oufkir children managed to dig a tunnel with their bare hands and make a daring escape ... though they were recaptured after only five days of freedom.
