A reading from BH365: An Inclusive Account of American History textbook from the Elephant Experience.

White Man Experiences Life As A Negro in the Deep South

Can a white person truly understand the black experience? Has anything changed since the 1960's? Is there any hope for our country regarding race relations? Even after much study and many cross-cultural conversations, most Black people would agree that it is impossible for a White person to fully understand the Black experience in America. Why? Because even if someone's skin was darkened and other physical aspects were altered, they still wouldn't be able to fully comprehend. John Howard Griffin, after talking with his wife, decided to try this transformational experiment for a certain period of time to become a Black man in America. This is a brief account of his transformation and the history behind what sparked a book by him called, "Black Like Me" that became an international seller and American History.  A white man, a husband and father,  literally changing himself (by the dying of his skin) to a black man, to see how differently to two are treated. This is African American history because of his historical experience.
