I also was introduced to this wonderful book when I heard the author on NPR's This American Life. I sat in my car in a parking lot, hanging on to every word. When the soft, gentle voice of Gene Cheek had finished telling part of his amazing story, I sat there and wept. I ordered the book the minute I got home.
What a story! It is at once heartbreaking and inspirational. The author's life was dramatically impacted by racism and alcoholism, and he writes honestly about the residual effects. The fact that Gene Cheek could tell his story so eloquently and with such love and forgiveness is the real triumph. This is a truly amazing book! It will stay with you long after you've finished it. Highly recommended.

The Color of Love: A Mother's Choice in the Jim Crow South20 January 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
What a wonderful story told through the lens of a young boy during Jim Crow south. i just happen to stumble on this book at the library and read it for a book report in my human Rights class. Prof loved it.I liked this book so much that I purchased my own copy on Amazon for my home library. Many great reviews out there about this book. I felt like I was there witnessing the events in the book. It shows the power of love, it shows courage and passion for what we believe in and the convition to right the wrong. It shows how there is always someone in the family that we admire and learn from to guide us on a path of compasion, respect and love.
