Share Article

New book follows the author’s unusual life and the multicultural heritage he embraces.

Everybody has a story to tell. Author Ange Miguel do SACRAMENTO is one of those people whose stories deserve to be heard. In “Neither Black Nor White: An Unconventional Life,” his unusual and extreme life unfolds in a tale that will not soon be forgotten.

A narrative that reads like a musical score, “Neither Black Nor White: An Unconventional Life” is a story that invites readers to travel, participate in the events, and puts them at the heart of the adventures that not only chronicle the captivating (and tumultuous and passionate) life of the author, but also takes place at the intersection of the histories of Africa, Europe, and Latin America - Brazil, where he currently resides.

The course of his journey is an example of multiculturalism that aligns the author with the term while allowing him to embrace the world – when the fateful question is inevitably asked: “But where are you from?” it seems the author almost wants to say: “I am from everywhere and nowhere, neither black nor white.” Ange Miguel has lived fully and he allows the reader, with simplicity and candor, to relive the profound scenes of his uncommon life, shaped by history, and imbued with a voice that is uniquely his. He opens up to the reader as if he were a longtime friend.
