"Tori and Jebuni met at an Ghanaian Art Show and formed an instant connection. Of course there were many issues that Tori who is white and Jebuni who is African. They racism they encountered on campus and at home is so heartbreaking. Jebuni and Tori had to learn to fight for what was important and maybe change lives in the process. One of my favorite quotes from the book is “Slavery diminished man and reduced him to only specter of what he was created to be.” Page 48 I received this book from the publisher and the opinions expressed are entirely my own."

"I was very blessed by the book. Growing up in Eastern Washington state I have not experienced racial bias’s to a great degree. Race never was talked about ‘much’ so I enjoyed an inside perspective of 1959 in Pennsylvania (the year I was born). I cannot understand the mentality other then a lack of Godly knowledge on the part of those that believe a skin color dictates value and intelligence. The book was very well written and thought out. I thought it was a big story for a small book."
"Set in 1959 Philadelphia and Ghana, the love story of Jeb and Tori takes the reader on a journey saturated with cultural prejudice, hard set traditions, and incredible faith in the One who bought them together. From the first chapter, the reader is drawn into the lives of the main characters who come from entirely different worlds. Despite their backgrounds and the identity that society seems to have laid out for them, the two continue to face their own personal struggles with great faith and strength; a quality that goes beyond the pages of In Black and White, and inspires the reader in their own life. Dr. Maryann Diorio has the ability to capture love, struggle, and hope while continually drawing the reader into her story. Her passion for the Lord seeps out of every page and continues in the thought provoking questions for personal meditation and group discussion at the end of the book. In Black and White was both heartwarming and eye opening; a wonderful read to continue to encourage our society to recognize the impact of prejudices and how to combat them with God's love."
