black and (A)broad: traveling beyond the limitations of identity (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 02, 2010 11:51AM
Description: After accepting her Dutch boyfriend’s invitation to move from sultry New Orleans, Carolyn finds herself in the land of windmills, wooden shoes and endless gray skies. As she moves away from the remnants of her tragic childhood and America’s obsession with race, she is plunged into the depths of an identity crisis that threatens to engulf her. Later, as she travels through motherhood and a career change, her determination is put to the test. In this mid-life memoir, Carolyn writes candidly about how getting the runaround while studying in Spain, being mistaken for a prostitute and losing her passport in Cuba, and dealing with Dutch people on their bikes (among other quirky adventures) have changed her ideas about being a black woman in the world.
