About this title


Born Colored is about generations of a family living in the deep South prior to the start of the Civil Rights Movement. Bloody Sunday--March 7, 1965--was the day that 200 troopers beat 500 peaceful marchers with billy clubs, whips and tear gas as they attempted to walk from Selma to Montgomery. Mitchell's book captures this "boiling over" which she sees as the result of years and years of emotional and physical injuries. By simply telling the truth, she captures the tyranny upon which the Movement was built.

About the Author:

Erin Goseer Mitchell was born in Selma, AL and grew up there and in Fitzgerald, GA. Her stories reveal the insights of a child and the hard-won wisdom of a segregated Deep South survivor. Erin is a graduate of Spelman College and has a Master of Music degree from Roosevelt University, Chicago. She taught for 38 years and began a writing career after retiring from the Chicago Public Schools.
