Audio CD. Dimensions: 6.8in. x 6.5in. x 1.0in.Mishna Wolff grew up in a poor black neighborhood with her single father, a white man who truly believed he was black. He strutted around with a short perm, a Cosby-esque sweater, gold chains and a Kangoltelling jokes like Redd Fox, and giving advice like Jesse Jackson. You couldnt tell my father he was white. Believe me, I tried, writes Wolff. And so from early childhood on, her father began his crusade to make his white daughter down. Unfortunately, Mishna didnt quite fit in with the neighborhood kids: she couldnt dance, she couldnt sing, she couldnt double dutch, and she was the worst player on her all-black basketball team. She was shy, uncool, and painfully white. And yet when she was suddenly sent to a rich white school, she found she was too black to fit in with her white classmates. Im Down is a hip, hysterical, and at the same time beautiful memoir that will have you howling with laughter, recommending it to friends and questioning what it means to be black and white in America.
