The Golden Children

A Dramatic Novel About America's Most Searing Topic - RACE

A Dramatic Novel About America’s Most Searing Topic – RACE. Only ten years ago, if a black man and white woman were seen walking in the street together, hand in hand, some people would stare, some would curse and others would spit as though a personal indignity had been done to them. But nevertheless the missed couples continue to appear in ever-growing numbers.
Here is the work of fiction that is as real as tomorrow’s headlines. They’re all in this meaningful book; the integration boys, the black power advocates, the town hate-peddlers, the bored teenagers---all trying to keep the young lovers apart.
