28. Black Like Me '94

Joshua Solomon, a U. of Maryland college student, re-creates John Howard Griffin's sojourn thru' the South and records his experience at http://www.mdcbowen.org/p2/rm/white/solomon.html

Where John Griffin was black for a summer, Solomon doesn't make it a week.

How is this history? There are those who would like to think the racial caste system and racism are over just because the Brown vs. Board of Education decision ended formal segregation and the Civil Rights Acts were passed. Just because they may have a boss that isn't a white male doesn't mean that this country is living up to its credos and ideals. A visit to the GD board proves that.
