Publisher's description: Studs Terkel tells us in his Foreword to the definitive Griffin Estate Edition of Black Like Me: "This is a contemporary book, you bet." Indeed, Black Like Me remains required reading in thousands of high schools and colleges for this very reason. Regardless of how much progress has been made in eliminating outright racism from American life, Black Like Me endures as a great human and humanitarian document. In our era, when "international" terrorism is most often defined in terms of a single ethnic designation and a single religion, we need to be reminded that America has been blinded by fear and racial intolerance before. As John Lennon wrote, "Living is easy with eyes closed." Black Like Me is the story of a man who opened his eyes, and helped an entire nation to do likewise.

This is a heartwarming, ever-evolving story about a socially transplanted Caucasian brother and sister thrust by circumstance into life and love in the hood. It is the joy of acceptance and the pain of rejection finally told from the opposite perspective of black Americans being denied assimilation into white society. It is the "OC" inside out, blended with Spike Lee's Jungle Fever upside down, and a kinder, warmer Eminem's 8-Mile. It is a story whose time has finally come. Its chemistry is exquisitely perfect. It presents situations that evoke only empathy, and characters that everyone will relate to and ultimately embrace. Black-Like-Me is the realization of American life and its true promise of human manifest destiny. Read this and swell up inside. Hey, you are about to fall in love!

Never hesitant to explore new territory, Fred Wilson, in a major solo exhibition at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, displays his growing interest in the medium of glass. He has taken the title of the exhibition, "Black Like Me," from John Howard Griffin's groundbreaking 1961 book of the same name. A white civil-rights activist, Griffin dyed his skin black and traveled throughout the South to directly understand the nature of racial prejudice. Wilson, invited in 2002 to be an artist-in-residence at the Philchuck Glass School in Washington State, began to work in the medium, leading to his extensive use of it as the United States' representative for the 2003 Venice Biennale. Known for incorporating found objects into his art as a vehicle for cultural and institutional critique, Wilson takes a new, more personal, introspective direction in his exploration of racial and ethnic marginalization.
