About this title:

Synopsis: Candid, poignant, provocative, and informative, the essays and stories in Skin Deep explore a wide spectrum of racial issues between black and white women, from self-identity and competition to childrearing and friendship. Eudora Welty contributes a bittersweet story of a one-hundred-year-old black woman whose spirit is as determined and strong as anything in nature. Bestselling author Naomi Wolf recalls her first exposure to racism growing up, examining the subtle forms it can take even among well-meaning people; bell hooks writes about the intersection between black women and feminist politics; and Joyce Carol Oates includes a one-act play in which racial stereotypes are reversed. Among the other writers featured in the collection are Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Susan Straight, Mary Morris, and Beverly Lowry. A groundbreaking anthology that reveals surprising insights and hidden truths to a subject too often clouded by misperceptions and easy assumptions,  Skin Deep is a major contribution to understanding our culture.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Publisher: From Toni Morrison to Joyce Carol Oates, from Eudora Welty to Alice Walker, this eye-opening anthology collects essays, stories, drama, and poetry by some of today's finest women writers as well as less well-known, but equally articulate, new voices. Together, they are a compelling chorus that comments perceptively on race relations, the female experience, and the sometimes uneasy areas where they overlap.
