A Man Called White: The Autobiography of Walter White (Brown Thrasher Books Ser.)

This book is about Walter Francis White
In "A Man Called White: The Autobiography of Walter White," readers are swept into the first riveting thirty years of service that Walter White dedicated to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Published on February 1, 1995, this enlightening autobiography not only traces White's personal evolution but also serves as an insider’s chronicle of the NAACP's formative years. Walter White, an African American man with fair skin, blond hair, and blue eyes, utilized his unique appearance to infiltrate deeply segregated communities at great personal risk. His undercover investigations into lynchings and systemic discrimination were pivotal in the legal victories and civil rights advancements of his time. The book vividly recounts landmark events and trials, from the Scottsboro Boys to the fight for equal education, making it a compelling read for those in adult education programs interested in racial justice. White’s story is a powerful testament to the courage and persistence needed to challenge and dismantle systemic racism.
