Beyond the Whiteness of Whiteness free pdf "I am Black," Jane Lazarre's son tells her. "I have a Jewish mother, but I am not 'biracial.' That term is meaningless to me." She understands, she says but he tells her, gently, that she can't because she is white. In this moving memoir, Jane Lazarre offers a powerful meditation on motherhood and racism in America as she works to understand the experiences of her African-American husband and their two sons. Recounting her education into the realities of African American life, Lazarre shows how although perceptions of racial difference lie at the heart of American history and culture, anyone can fully comprehend the experience of another through understanding, empathy, and learning.This Twentieth Anniversary Edition features a new preface, in which Lazarre's elegy for Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, South Carolina, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and so many others reminds us of race's continued resonance in American life. As #BlackLivesMatter gains momentum, "Beyond the Whiteness of Whiteness" is more urgent and essential than ever."
