Black, White, and Jewish: Autobiography of a Shifting Self is a 2002 autobiography by the American feminist writer Rebecca Walker.


Born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1969, Rebecca Walker is the daughter of the African-American womanist writer Alice Walker and the Jewish-American civil rights lawyer Melvyn R. Leventhal. Her Jewish father is white and her Black mother was raised Christian. In the book, Walker explores her early years living in Mississippi as the child of parents who were active in the later years of the Civil Rights Movement. Walker also touches on living with two parents with very active careers, which she believes led to their separation. She discusses encountering racism and the difficulties of being mixed-race in a society with rigid cultural barriers. Walker also discusses embracing her sexuality and identity as a bisexual Black Jewish woman. [1] [2]
