Descriptions du produit

From Publishers Weekly

Griffin's (The Devil Rides Outside) mid-century classic on race brilliantly withstands both the test of time and translation to audio format. Concerned by the lack of communication between the races and wondering what "adjustments and discriminations" he would face as a Negro in the Deep South, the late author, a journalist and self-described "specialist in race issues," left behind his privileged life as a Southern white man to step into the body of a stranger. In 1959, Griffin headed to New Orleans, darkened his skin and immersed himself in black society, then traveled to several states until he could no longer stand the racism, segregation and degrading living conditions. Griffin imparts the hopelessness and despair he felt while executing his social experiment, and professional narrator Childs renders this recounting even more immediate and emotional with his heartfelt delivery and skillful use of accents. The CD package includes an epilogue on social progress, written in 1976 by the author, making it suitable for both the classroom and for personal enlightenment.

From School Library Journal

Grade 10 Up-John Howard Griffin's groundbreaking and controversial novel about his experiences as a white man who transforms himself with the aid of medication and dye in order to experience firsthand the life of a black man living in the Deep South in the late 1950s is a mesmerizing tale of the ultimate sociological experiment. Ray Childs' narration is both straightforward and deeply satisfying. A skilled reader, he incorporates different dialects to help listeners distinguish among the various characters. His ability to convey a full spectrum of emotions, including exhilaration, bone deep sadness, and gut wrenching fear is riveting. Equally fascinating is Childs' description of how Griffin's unheard of approach to studying racial discrimination changed his personal life and ignited a storm of argument and discussion around the nation. This recording deserves a place in every public library collection.

Par Alex Malinovich - Publié sur Amazon.com

I picked this up completely on a whim after hearing someone mention it online. It is absolutely an amazing work. To really get a feel for how far this country has come in 50 short years, and to really understand how far we have left to go, you need to read this.

As a white male, I've always been offended by the term 'white privilege', because it implies that I somehow didn't work for what I have. But having read this, I can finally appreciate it. My 'white privilege' has nothing to do with me not working hard and not deserving the things that I have accomplished. I have worked hard, and I do deserve those things.

But these are things that blacks never had the opportunity to do. No matter how smart they were, no matter how well dressed, or well spoken, no matter how *white* they tried to appear to blend in, they would never be given the opportunity to prove themselves on their own merits. Their opportunities were taken away before they ever had a chance to even attempt to do grab them.

And while I can definitely appreciate how far we have come in a relatively short time, I am now able to see with a fresh new perspective the things that are still wrong with our thinking today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read for All 12 juin 2010
Par B. Peters - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin should be required reading for America. It challenges and troubles the reader. Mr. Griffin's bravery in embarking upon such a strange quest is most appreciated yet puzzling. The information he gleaned about the deeper aspects of African-American life in racially-divided America is on target. Instead of glossing over the realities of the plight of a brown-skinned person in America, he confronted it head on. I wonder if I will ever see an America that could read and discuss such a book with a deep desire to understand another person's world?

I bought this hard cover version of the book. The cover is helpful to remember when reading. And this version has a number of pictures in the middle that current paperbacks do NOT have that really give insight into the reality of the story. Recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the BEST books I have read 25 août 2011
Par Debstake - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I read this book in the 70's while in high school. It has to be one of the best books I have ever read. And the book that made me appreciate the life long work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I am a white woman who was raised in the coal regions of Pennsylvania. At the time there were no people of color (any color) in my small town. Most were of Irish/German/Polish ancestry. I never saw any form of racism UNTIL I picked up this book.

This book opened my eyes and made me understand a LITTLE bit of what life was like during the 50's and still are like for some to this day. We need to take a lesson from this man. If I could I would give this book 1000 stars.

A previous reviewer suggested that this book should be required reading in high school. When I was in high school in the '60's, it was required reading for my class. I don't recall much about that year high school any more, but I remember this book. I couldn't put it down then, and although I haven't re-read it in all these years, I still think about it to this day. That is the mark of an incredible book. Read this book and allow it to seep into your pores. It will change you forever. And I WILL be re-reading this book.
