The companion volume to the 50th-anniversary edition of Black Like Me, this book features John Howard Griffin's later writings on racism and spirituality. Conveying a progressive evolution in thinking, it further explores Griffin's ethical stand in the human rights struggle and nonviolent pursuit of equality--a view he shared with greats such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., and Thomas Merton. Enlightening and forthright, this record also focuses on Griffin's spiritual grounding in the Catholic monastic tradition, discussing the illuminating meditations on suffering and the author's own reflections on communication, justice, and dying.
