As a boy from Red Hook to Brooklyn projects, James McBride knew that his mother was differentBut when he asked about it, she had simply said “I am the light to the skinLater, he wondered if he was different, and asked his mother if he was black or white.”You’re a human being, it’s broken.Educate yourself or you will be a personAnd when James asked what God’s color was, she said, “God is the color of water.”As an adult, McBride finished convincing his mother to tell his story – the story of a rabbi’s daughter, born in Poland and raised in the South, who fled to Harlem, married a black man, founded a Baptist church, and put twelve children through university
