Your classes will marvel at James McBride's story of his mother's remarkable life. The Color of Water is a startling portrayal of race in America, filled with themes classes will relate to: exclusion because of race, how the past influences the present, and the importance of a strong figure when growing up.

Ruth McBride was an immigrant Russian Jew who moved to America at age two. From her childhood in the South to her marriage to an African American in Harlem, this remarkable story of a woman's faith and endurance shows both the power of a good woman and the myriad problems with society.
