White Boy: A Memoir is one man's unvarnished story of love, loss, race, Memphis, and a dark past. Everything is laid bare when Memphis author, journalist, and college professor Tom Graves takes a vivid and deep introspective account of his life.
Certainly no one can accuse Graves of looking back through rose-colored glasses, as chapter after riveting chapter, he confronts his family's racist past, shares his eyewitness memories of the integration of Memphis public schools, details his dating escapades with women from another race, and brings you to tears with his powerful account of the roller-coaster relationship with a Sierra Leone native whom he met on Match.com and brought to the US to become his bride.
This courageous and unforgettable memoir is sure to stir, and perhaps even prompt you to reconsider, your own feelings about love and race.

Heartbreakingly honest and hilarious
Tom Graves, born into a white, working class family in 1950's Memphis, grew up never questioning his father's racist beliefs. Only years later did he begin to question his inherited racism. A true coming of age story - mentally, spiritually, sexually, intellectually. Tom Graves is "Every Boy" -- slowly shedding the skin of the man he was supposed to become to grow into the man he wanted to be. A great read!
