This fictionalized memoir brings to life the experience of a white, North Louisiana born middle-class youth, coming to terms with the confounding ambiguities of a racially divided South. Marrying a person of color and siring mixed-race children, David Duncan, a college history professor, spends years teaching race and ethnicity during the turbulent era of the Civil Rights Struggle. At the same time he experiences first-hand the tensions that marked the racial climate of the South, particularly in New Orleans, in the 1960s. His personal journey reflects the often disturbing conflicts between the universal ideal of equality and the reality of human bigotry and injustice.
