The New York Times Gives SFDC A Great Review!

My book made it to The New York Times

My book made it to The New York Times

Yesterday The New York Times posted their online review of Same Family, Different Colors. The reviewer, Stanford professor, Allyson Hobbs, called the book “urgent and and honest.” She then went on to give it an amazingly positive review. I am thrilled to say the least. I am especially thrilled because Ms. Hobbs is the author of the book A Chosen Exile: A History of Racial Passing in American Life and obviously understands all of the nuance and history of skin color discrimination in this country. If you read my blog, My American Meltingpot, then you know I gave Professor Hobbs a shout out when her book debuted.

Same Family, Different Colors is my fourth book, but it’s the first book of mine that’s ever been reviewed by The New York Times. For a writer, this feels like winning gold. At least for me it does. My greatest hope is that this review simply brings more people to my book and more people to the table for a conversation about color.

Peace + Pretty Colors
