White is a State of Mind: A Memoir

White is a State of Mind: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Showered with awards, honors, and critical praise for her previous memoir, Warriors Don't Cry — which detailed her years as one of the "Little Rock Nine" who integrated Central High School — Melba Pattillo Beals now presents an acclaimed follow-up which answers the question asked of her time and time again: What happened next?

Here, she recounts the story of her move to California, where she found refuge in the home of a white family, her eventual marriage to a white man, and her long struggle to let trust and love conquer fear and hate. Her inspiring tale of healing offers a new definition of family and of freedom — as well as a compelling account of moving from powerlessness to power, with heart and soul intact.
