Over the centuries, color of skin is one of the major realities that affected the black people—they are the usual target of discrimination. How does it feel to be a part of this family? How do these people suffer because of their skin color? Author Greg Robinson pens a life-changing and inspirational story of how one white boy dreams to become one of the black people—and faces tremendous obstacles for dreaming of it. Am I Black? will show readers the truth of what it is to be black, the effects of discrimination and how to understand the meaning of equality.

In this book, readers will find the story of Ronald Trent Robey as told by the author. Ronnie was the persistent white boy who dreams to become black—and was partially raised by a black family. Here, they will learn how the black family made a tremendous influence on his life and how they taught him so much about life as a black person though he could never really experience some things for himself. The book also reveals how the black family showed Ronnie how they lived with being hated because of their skin color and how they led him to believe that things won’t be right unless everyone is white. Am I Black? will walk readers through Ronnie’s different journey which will inspire them to explore, understand and experience what it’s like to be a black person.

Through this book, readers’ awareness about the essence of skin color will find an encouraging turn. It will inspire them to consider the value of every life despite whatever differences—whether it is with the color of the skin, set of beliefs and any other aspects.
