Love In Black & White
Here's an interview with Former Secretary of State William Cohen & Journalist Janet Langhart Cohen being (somewhat annoyingly) interviewed by Matt Lauer. They're discussing the book about their dating and marriage to each other, Love In Black & White: A Memoir of Race, Religion and Romance. You'll hear about some of the old familiar arguments from Janet's dad about "hooking up with the oppressor" nonsense - meanwhile black men have had NO QUALMS WHATSOEVER about dating and mating with white women. That indoctrination tactic runs wide and deep, eh?
I am actually slightly more interested in her earlier memoir From Rage to Reason: My Life In Two Americas, but think both will provide some insight into the skills and perseverance that will benefit all women trying to achieve career success AND a fulfilling personal life.
