White Parents, Raising Black Children
A white River Valley grandma told me some years ago that her daughter, who grew up here and graduated from a River Valley high school, would never come back here to live because she "knows how these people are." Her daughter is the mother of a child whose father is Black. I remember thinking, how sad. She might come for a visit but never come home to live. Many of our bi-racial children, who identify or call themselves Black, live the life of the children in this "white family." Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man is a series that we can all watch. Here is one example.
