Survival: Black/White deals with exposition of way of life of the rural southern black people of the United States. The work also hopes to change the attitude and perception of white people towards black people. The book presents a personal account of the author while living with black people, providing understanding and appreciation of their lifestyles, how they came to be and what purposes they serve. The book is divided into 2 parts. Part I: How it has been, focuses on the way the black man perceives and experiences his world. Part II: How it is, deals with the history and developments of the emancipation movement. Historians, sociologists, psychologists, researchers, and students of black history will find this text an interesting piece of resource.
