I just finished reading Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin. First published in 1961, this ground-breaking non-fiction book, written in the form of a journal, tells the story of a white man (Griffin) who took medication to darken his skin so he could pass as African-American. He then traveled through the Deep South for several weeks, taking notes on how he was treated as an older African-American man in the United States. The result is a close look at racism and stereotypes and a fine example of what journal writing can be.
Do you keep a journal? If so, what is it about? If you wrote a journal about a specific topic for six weeks, what might that topic be?
