Summary
Hngel-Marshall is the daughter of a Bavarian woman and an African-American soldier she didn't meet until many years later. Left at age 7 in an orphanage, where she was taken to have the "black demon" exorcised from her, Hngel-Marshall tells of her long struggle to come to terms with life as a German among people who seemed determined to disavow her existence. In her late 30s, she began to meet other Afro-Germans and explore her identity. A friend of the writer Audre Lord, she eventually published a number of works on anti-racist education. Her memoir is punctuated with snippets of poetry and illustrated with family snapshots. (The work has no index.) Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
