Black Like Me

I’ve noticed that a somewhat befuddling number of people have reached the site by searching for “black like me,” which I included on my “Required Reading” list of memoirs. I can only assume that somewhere out there is a teacher who has assigned an essay on John Howard Griffin’s book, one that is due very soon.

So, to all you students out there, allow me to apologize for not having something more substantial to offer about the book (like, say, a summary, a list of central characters and themes, and a discussion of the relevant symbolism). I’ll also take this opportunity to again recommend that you actually read it. Believe it or not, it’s an enjoyable read.
