CROSSING THE COLOR LINE: Race, Parenting and Culture.
Edition: First printing.
New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, (1994) dj. Hardcover first edition - Essays on some aspects of her life as a white woman, married to a black man and raising interracial children. Although written more than 20 years ago, the beginning of the preface could have come from today's news, as Reddy realizes that her son, who is playing a game of hide-and-seek, is now old enough and tall enough to be mistaken for "the urban predator of television-fueled nightmares, ready to spring from the bushes." She realizes she has waited too long to warn him - that he has to keep his hands out of his pockets when in stores, how to talk to the police when they stop him on his bicycle, etc. A very personal and deeply felt book. Bibliography, index. xvi, 193 pp. ISBN: 0-8135-2105X.
Condition: Fine in fine dust jacket (a new copy.)
