Hats Off! to John Amen who contributed a narrative to the forthcoming collection What Does It Mean to Be White in America? (April, 2Leaf Press). While the literature on “whiteness” has long been dominated by an academic point of view, editors Gabrielle David and Sean Frederick Forbes came to the realization that there was an unmet need for an anthology of personal narratives about white race and culture from the perspective of white Americans. The stories cover a wide gamut of American history from contributors around the United States; from reminiscing about segregation and Jim Crow, to today’s headlines of police brutality, politics, and #BlackLivesMatters.
