it was amazing

"Black Like Me" is an all-inspiring depiction of racism in America during the 1960. The overt and covert racism portrayed in "Black Like Me" speaks not only to me, the white man, but to all generations of "negro" Americans. Furthermore John Howards Griffins portrayal of civil injustice is a very americana ideas. The inalienable rights of "Life. Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness" were stripped from negroes at birth. Griffin's work, along with other civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. land the ground work for "judging a man by the contents of his character, not by the color of his skin."
