What keeps many single black women from exploring relationships outside of their race at a time when the pool of eligible black men is at an all-time low? "Don't bring home a white boy" is the cultural message stamped deep into every black daughter, an enduring twenty-first-century taboo with origins dating back to the Civil War era, the turbulent Civil Rights decades, and beyond. Now at last there is an honest, eye-opening examination of this societal phenomenon that gives voice to all sides of the hot-button issue. Karyn Langhorne Folan, herself a black woman happily married to a white man, brings together historical, statistical, and psychological perspectives in a groundbreaking book that boldly debunks the "notions" that can keep interracial dating off the table for many women. Filled with real-life anecdotes from and interviews with men and women of both races, Don't Bring Home a White Boy serves as a timely and invaluable handbook to help women look beyond skin color in the quest to have all they deserve and desire in a life partner.
