Book Review of :  Invisible Colored White

invisible-colored-white.jpg Invisible Colored White by Richard Rizzo is memoir of a young man who in 1949 moves from his neighborhood to Harlem--his mother has married a black man. Rizzo until this time had been living in an Italian-American neighborhood. His parents were divorced and his life took on quite the change. His mother also became a Communist. What changes this young man had to endure and the way he handled them is the focus of Invisible Colored White. The experiences he was led into and through prove to be many and varied. You will see that Rizzo had his own way of coping--unnoticed on the the sideline. 1949 was not by any means in an era that such drastic changes in lifestyle and surroundings were common. Rizzo does later in life "find" who he is - as America changes he is able to identify racial, ethnic and other experiences he had - self identification. Very enjoyable book!!
