Bi-racial author reflects on coming of age in Leavenworth, Kansas
Eric M. Smith reveals the daily struggles he experienced and offers a new perspective on race.
A candid story about the challenges faced by those who have one white and one Black parent is the subject of Eric Smith's book, "Half-n-Half."
Coming from an inter-racial marriage, the author describes living in Leavenworth where he found himself more on guard than he had been in his hometown of Chicago.
In his memoir, Smith raises the question of whether we are any closer today to accepting people for who they are before looking at their skin color.
