This compelling memoir examines the life of a military brat juxtaposed against the ugliness of America's original sin. In a country so racially polarized, belonging is a matter of survival--but Michael Gordon Bennett suffered the ultimate identity crisis. Who was he? Where did he belong? His ignorance of all things black and white proved his undoing leading to a period of homelessness. It begins in Madrid, Spain during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, where Michael is so far removed from the struggle, he thought himself more Spanish than a black American. He eventually migrates to a junior high school in the Deep South suffering through the first year of "forced busing" in the name of desegregation. That was followed by graduation from a Colorado high school with him as the only black male in his senior class. Those disparate circumstances left Michael ostracized and alone.
