Join us as Marra Gad, author of The Color of Love: A Memoir of a Mixed Race Jewish Girl, is interviewed by local author, Martha Moody Jacobs.
Three days after her birth, Marra was adopted by a white Jewish family in Chicago. For her parents, it was love at first sight - but it was 1970, and they soon came to realize not everyone loved so freely. Since her adoption, Marra has always had trouble finding a community that would accept her. She is not "black enough" for black spaces, and in the Jewish community, she has often been cast aside or disrespected.
