A review by _alwaysrealokay
The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man by James Weldon Johnson


This was an alright book. In all the passing narrative I've read so far this year, this one was the most anticlimactic one. The story was well written enough but the reason he chose to pass can be seen as cowardness.Or as someone who never truly felt black although he grew up emerge in the culture. All I'm going to say is the narrator is lying to himself big time. If you read the book, you will understand what I mean.
