Waking from the Dream: My life in the Black Middle Class Hardcover – 1996
Top Customer Reviews
Certainly he is living the dream of comfort and prosperity, but at what cost? It will take more than having his daughter play with black skinned dolls to make this life of his feel right, more than going back home to find the old schoolmates living well in white society. It will take all of us working toward an understanding of our racial and exclusive behavior, working to destroy these walls and accepting each other for our merits and our flaws. I am not naive enough to believe this will happen in Mr. Fulwood's lifetime, nor in mine, but this book has caused me to question the ideals I hold dear. We are not all "white devils", but we also are not changing the basic rules of our society either. This book is challenging to anyone who reads it slowly for the moral content and the implications of our elder's intentions.
