"A sort of Black Like Me version of the Moor."

Black Like Me is a book by John Howard Griffin, charting his experiences of travelling through the racially segregated southern states of the USA in the early 1960s, having darkened his skin so as to pass as a black man. Earning a great deal of attention – and controversy – it was, in many ways, a groundbreaking book that did a lot to aid human rights, but the project was much criticised.
