內容簡介


跨越種族界限,深入偏遠的南方鄉間,美國記者John Howard Griffin最大膽的紀實作品
親身體會美國種族主義的迫害及恐懼
「最深入及透徹的紀實作品,解析美國多年未解的種族問題。」─《亞特蘭大立憲報》

50年帶的美國南方,一條黑白種族界線深深地刻蝕在路伊斯安那、密西西比、阿拉巴馬及喬治亞各州之間。美國作家John Howard Griffin決定親自跨越這條界線,利用藥劑和染料將自己扮成黑人,放棄他身為白人的特權,走訪南方各州,去親身經歷一幕幕怵目驚心的種族歧視真相。書中血淋淋的紀載成為黑人後的他,親自感受黑人遭遇的仇恨和歧視,而這些過程也深深地改變他的心理狀態。透過文中真實的描述與細膩入圍的心理描寫,令人深刻感受美國種族歧視的可怕。 

THE HISTORY-MAKING CLASSIC ABOUT CROSSING THE COLOR LINE IN AMERICA'S SEGREGATED SOUTH

“One of the deepest, most penetrating documents yet set down on the racial question.”—Atlanta Journal & Constitution

 
In the Deep South of the 1950’s, a color line was etched in blood across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. Journalist John Howard Griffin decided to cross that line. Using medication that darkened his skin to deep brown, he exchanged his privileged life as a Southern white man for the disenfranchised world of an unemployed black man.
 
What happened to John Howard Griffin—from the outside and within himself—as he made his way through the segregated Deep South is recorded in this searing work of nonfiction. His audacious, still chillingly relevant eyewitness history is a work about race and humanity every American must read.

作者介紹
John Howard Griffin
John Howard Griffin (1920-1980) is known internationally as the author of two novels, Nuni and The Devil Rides Outside, five books and monographs on racism in addition to Black Like Me, a biography of Thomas Merton, three collections of photography, a volume of journals, two historical works on Texas, a musicological study, and The John Howard Reader. Born in Dallas, Texas, and educated in France, he served in the U.S. Air Force in the South Pacific, where an injury he received during a Japanese bombardment eventually resulted in the complete loss of his sight. In the 1950's he converted to Catholicism, married, and raised a family. In 1957, (after ten years of blindness) he miraculously regained his sight.
