About the Book

Starlight is raised by a family of racists, who actually believe that if she is gets too close to any Black people, their skin secretions will adhere to her skin, and she will never be able to rub it off! Aunt Myrtle, from northern Wisconsin, warnng her that the odor of the Black people is very pugnant, and will make her vomit, if she gets to close to the. Later in her teens, when the handsome Black boys followed her around town, her Father told her: "You will not be allowed to return home, if you ever bring one of them to the house." It was revealed at her Mother's funeral,that her Uncle LeRoy was a leader in the KluKlux Klan in the 1930's-60's. Starlight tells the sometimes humorous, insanely serious, and the eventual peace she made with the hate and fear that suirrounded her. She shares her redemptive tale of connecting with the the African-American people, in her 40 years of teaching across America.
