Film and television producer, Marra Gad, shares her unforgettable memoir about being a mixedrace Jewish woman. Adopted by a white Jewish family, it was love at first sight for her parents, but they quickly realized the world wasn’t ready for a family like theirs.
As a child, Marra came to realize that she was "a mixed-race, Jewish unicorn." In black spaces, she was not black enough and in Jewish spaces, she was mistaken for the help, asked to leave, or worse. Even in her own extended family, racism bubbled to the surface.
At times heart-wrenching and heartwarming, this is a story about what you inherit from your family—identity, disease, melanin, hate, and most powerful of all, love.
