A Segregated Romance
He said, "Love is colorblind."
Three words which changed her life forever.
Segregation. Racism. Diversity.
Follow Carolina Whittley and read her story about how she lived in a world to her, evolved around, racism, segregation, and love. Living in a period where the fight to end racism was anything she and her family seemed to think of, and the struggle to end segregation. Her life had become everything but comfortable as she worries about the safety of her family and herself as the politics of everyday threaten her existence. Life in the south before the civil rights movement, and during, African Americans constantly underwent a series of all forms of hate just because of the amount of Melanin in their skin. And her being the same amount of white as she is black brings hate from both sides. With her curious mind, and ability to think deeper about everyday things she could distract herself from the harsh real world.
Until the day she caught Lewis Montgomery's eyes.
Even though there are many rules in the white community on what the right way to treat people who are darker then a paper bag, not everyone follows. Lewis Montgomery will find his open minded thoughts can complicate things in the life he's always known. Will he forget everything his father told him about how to treat the Colored in the neighborhood next over, especially when he begins to become fond of one girl who's infatuated with books?
This is my first book during the 1960's era so I'll try to make it as accurate as possible.
