Description: Many black Americans have light skin. Using vivid and varied personal experiences, Judy Scales-Trent describes what it is like to be a "white" black woman and to live simultaneously inside and outside of both white and black communities. Scales-Trent begins by describing how this country's racial purity laws have operated over the past four hundred years. Then, in a series of autobiographical essays, she addresses how race and color interact in relationships between men and women, within families, and in the larger community. Scales-Trent ultimately explores the question of what we really mean by "race" in this country, once it is clear that race is not a tangible reality as reflected through color. Scales-Trent uses autobiography both as a way to describe these issues and to develop a theory of the social construction of race. She explores how race and color intertwine through black and white families and across generations; how members of both black and white communities work to control group membership; and what happens to relations between black men and women when the layer of color is placed over the already difficult layer of race. She addresses how one can tell - and whether one can tell - who, indeed, is "black" or "white". Scales-Trent also celebrates the richness of her bicultural heritage and shows how she has revised her teaching methods to provide her law students with a multicultural education. In the tradition of Reflections of an Affirmative Action Baby, The Alchemy of Race and Rights, and The Sweeter the Juice, Notes of a White Black Woman explores the meaning of race in the United States, the power of racial categories in our lives, and the personal experience of beinga black professional in an overwhelmingly white world.
