ALMOST WHITE by Brewster Berry


Email this review


There live, today, in this year of 1962, several thousands of people in the United States of America who are neither black, nor white, nor mulatto nor Oriental. They claim, and in some cases are accorded by their neighbors or local governments, kinship with and descent from American Indian tribes; in various cases this profession is scoffed at and restrained from legal manifestation by the communities in which they live. Their existence is virtually unrecognized by those who have never come into direct contact with them: even the Census, Indian Affairs, and other Government bureaus do not really know how to deal with them. Berry, a grant recipient, has been studying their problems for many years, and here spells out the problems they face in this era of school integration and other changing patterns of race relations.
