Book Description: This is a heartwarming, ever-evolving story about a socially transplanted Caucasian brother and sister thrust by circumstance into life and love in the hood. It is the joy of acceptance and the pain of rejection finally told from the opposite perspective of black Americans being denied assimilation into white society. It is the "OC" inside out, blended with Spike Lee's Jungle Fever upside down, and a kinder, warmer Eminem's 8-Mile. It is a story whose time has finally come. Its chemistry is exquisitely perfect. It presents situations that evoke only empathy, and characters that everyone will relate to and ultimately embrace. Black-Like-Me is the realization of American life and its true promise of human manifest destiny. Read this and swell up inside. Hey, you are about to fall in love!

Book Description: First published by Orbis Books in 1997,Man in the Mirrortells the story behindBlack Like Me, a book that astonished America upon its publication in 1961, and remains an American classic 50 years later. In 1959 a white writer darkened his skin and passed for a time as a "Negro" in the Deep South. John Howard Griffin was that writer, and his bookBlack Like Meswiftly became a national sensation. Few readers know of the extraordinary journey that led to Griffin's risky "experiment"—the culmination of a lifetime of risk, struggle, and achievement. A native of Texas, Griffin was a medical student who became involved in the rescue of Jews in occupied France; a U.S. serviceman among tribal peoples in the South Pacific, where he suffered an injury that left him blinded for a decade; a convert to Catholicism; and, finally, a novelist and writer. All these experiences fed Griffin's drive to understand what it means to be human, and how human beings can justify treating their fellows—of whatever race or physical description—as "the intrinsic Other." After describing this journey and analyzing the text ofBlack Like Me, Robert Bonazzi treats the dramatic aftermath of Griffin's experiment and life.Man in the Mirrorprovides a fascinating look at the roots of this important book, and offers reflections on why, after all these years, it retains its impact and relevance.

Book Description: Publisher's description: Studs Terkel tells us in his Foreword to the definitive Griffin Estate Edition of Black Like Me: "This is a contemporary book, you bet." Indeed, Black Like Me remains required reading in thousands of high schools and colleges forthis very reason. Regardless of how much progress has been made in eliminating outright racism from American life, Black Like Me endures as a great human--and humanitarian--document. In our era, when "international" terrorism is most often defined in terms of a single ethnic designation and a single religion, we need to be reminded that America has been blinded by fear and racial intolerance before. As John Lennon wrote, "Living is easy with eyes closed." Black Like Me is the story of a man who opened his eyes, and helped an entire nation to do likewise.

Book Description: Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (Fakultät Medien), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Hausarbeit möchte ich mich dem Thema des fremden Selbst Griffins annähern und herausfinden: Wie stellt sich Griffin in seinem Tagebuch dar, während er aufgrund der Schwarzen Haut nicht mehr als "er selbst" erkannt wird? Inwiefern ist Black Like Me überhaupt dem Genre des Tagebuchs zuzuordnen? Wie prägen Stereotype Griffins Handeln als "fremdes Selbst" und die Art, wie er diese Erfahrungen niederschreibt? Wie kann die Authentizität der Niederschriften Griffins beurteilt werden? Weiter soll angesprochen werden, dass "Black Like Me" ein zeitloses Werk ist, das auch interkulturell verstanden werden kann.

Book Description: The companion volume to the 50th-anniversary edition of Black Like Me, this book features John Howard Griffin’s later writings on racism and spirituality. Conveying a progressive evolution in thinking, it further explores Griffin’s ethical stand in the human rights struggle and nonviolent pursuit of equality—a view he shared with greats such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Thomas Merton. Enlightening and forthright, this record also focuses on Griffin’s spiritual grounding in the Catholic monastic tradition, discussing the illuminating meditations on suffering and the author’s own reflections on communication, justice, and dying.
