Growing up in a Philadelphia suburb in the 1960s, there were instances when I was quite reluctant to point out to my classmates, who were all White, that I was indeed African American. There was an impenetrable boundary between African Americans and Whites. To be something else other than White meant to attract unwanted and unneeded attention. Sometimes I felt I harbored a secret, a mark, or stain, one that my friends and I just didn't discuss. I do not remember intentionally trying to deny who I am, but I am sure there were instances when I just didn't speak up with a loud voice. The pressure to somehow join the majority was intense and painful.
