I DOWN BY MISHNA WOLFF PDF

I like a good memoir and this books sure sounds fascinating. I like that it started off with funny moments. I have an okay memory- but my co-author, Stephanie, has an amazing memory- probably like the author. I liked your point about the fact that we could be anyone dependinf on when and to whom we were born. I hope you get to meet the author when she comes to your university!!! That would be awesome.

Humorist and former model Wolff details her childhood growing up in an all-black Seattle neighborhood with a white father who wanted to be black in this amusing memoir. Her father was raised in a similar neighborhood and—after a brief stint as a hippie in Vermont—returned to Seattle and settled into life as a self-proclaimed black man.

Wolff and her younger, more outgoing sister, Anora, are taught to embrace all things black, just like their father and his string of black girlfriends. Once again, Wolff finds herself the outcast among the wealthy white kids who own horses and take lavish vacations.

I’m Down: A Memoir

Martin's Press in In the book, she relates her experience of being white while growing up in a predominantly African-American neighborhood and having a different financial situation and culture than the other white children at her gifted student public school program filled with mostly white kids. She fights for acceptance in her neighborhood as she is perceived as "too white" while she struggles with acceptance and accepting others in her prestigious school. Mishna has trouble dealing with bullying from her peers, meeting the expectations her father sets for her no matter how unusual they seem , the pressure she puts on herself, and learning who she is while society is pushing and pulling her into what they want her to be. She competes with the children in her neighborhood to be the funniest, the meanest, and the toughest while she strives to be rich, successful, and seemingly carefree like her school friends.
