In the late sixties, Carla Mancari, a thirty-four-year-old white woman, sought a college degree at the historically black South Carolina State College. There, she faced inner demons of racist society, confronted her own fears and prejudices, learned to overcome her beliefs, and came to understand that racism is the most deadly of society's self-inflicted wounds.During her time at South Carolina State, a riot erupted between students and police when students were protesting a segregated bowling alley. Several of the protesters were killed in what has become known as the Orangeburg Massacre.Carla Mancari's inner journey mirrors that of the nation as a whole as it struggles against racism. By reading Mancari's memoir, we gain insight into our own moral struggles.
