      David Douglas of Holland, Michigan will read from
      his memoir, MARRIAGE BEYOND BLACK AND WHITE: AN INTERRACIAL
      FAMILY PORTRAIT

      Saturday, November 8th 7:00 P.M.
      The Baha'i Center
      53 East 11th Street (off University Place)
      New York, NY

      MARRIAGE BEYOND BLACK AND WHITE offers a poignant and sometimes
      painful look at what it was like to be an interracial family in the U.S. from the
      early 1940s to the mid-1990s. The memoir constructs an invaluable
      perspective on the roles of faith and spiritual transformation in combating
      prejudice and racism.

      When Barbara Wilson Tinker and Carlyle Douglas married, their union broke
      one of the strongest taboos in American society. In the early 1940s interracial
      marriage was outlawed in twenty-seven states and was regarded as an
      anathema in the rest. Mrs. Douglas began writing the story to record both the
      triumphs and hardships of interracial marriage and the challenges in rearing
      their family. Her son David completed the family chronicle.

      We hope that you will attend. It will be a moving, insightful, and spiritually
      uplifting evening. The event is free.
