The Weight of Whiteness
- A Memoir in Poetry
- By: Caroline Giles Banks
- Narrated by: Caroline Giles Banks
- Length: 1 hr and 2 mins
The Weight of Whiteness is a memoir in poetry form of the author's awareness of her whiteness during the integration of Boston's public schools in the 1950s and during visits with her family in the segregated South. Deeply personal, the poems examine the author's thoughts and feelings as family and others react to her interracial marriage in 1966, the year before the US Supreme Court overturned as unconstitutional 16 states' laws prohibiting miscegenation.
