Overview
On October 28, 1959, John Howard Griffin underwent a transformation that changed many lives beyond his ownhe made his skin black and traveled through the segregated Deep South. His odyssey of discovery was captured in journal entries, arguably the single most important documentation of 20th-century American racism ever written.More than 50years later, this newly edited editionwhichis based on the original manuscript and includes a new design and added afterwordgives fresh life to what is still considered a contemporary book. The story that earned respect from civil rights leaders and death threats from many others endures today as one of the great humanand humanitariandocuments of the era. In this new century, when terrorism is too often defined in terms of a single ethnic designation or religion, and the first black president of the United Statesis subject tohateful slurs, this record serves as a reminder that America has been blinded by fear and racial intolerance before. This is the story of a man who opened his eyes and helped an entire nation to do likewise.
