Black, White and Jewish

Alice Walker and Mel Leventhal, like many blacks from the South and whites from the North were brought together by the Civil Rights Movement. When they married, Mel's family turned its back on him and the first grandchild, Rebecca. After her parents divorced, Rebecca was bounced between white, Jewish, upper middle class suburbs, and her mother's "artisan" class lifestyle. Being black, white, and Jewish, but none of these things, Rebecca turned, chameleon-like, into whomever she needed to be, whether she was in Mississippi, Brooklyn, Washington, DC, the Haight, Westchester, the Bronx or Yale. Confused, and mostly alone, she turned to sex, drugs, books and a cast of characters who walked the edge. This is the story of a child's unique struggle for identity and home when nothing in her world showed her who she was. Poetic reflections on memory, time, and identity punctuate this gritty exploration of race and sexuality.
