About the Book

"Intermarriage is one of the most provocative words in the English language". This statement is made unequivocally by editor Clotye Larsson in her introduction to Marriage across the color line.

A collection of stories, published in Ebony, [Negro Digest][2] or Tan, about interracial marriage. Through these documentary accounts, the reader will see and feel the "slings and arrows" to which partners in mixed marriages are subjected. The book has moments of adventure, as well as degradation and brutality. But, more importantly, through it runs nobility. These people are not crusading, not out to prove anything. They just want to live their lives in peace and dignity ... and love.

The editor Clotye Murdock Larsson, a former associate editor of Ebony magazine was herself interracially married. She brilliantly covered the famous Emmett Till Trial.
