As blacks moved deeper into Chicago's West Side during the 1960s, whites fled by the thousands. But Linda Gartz's parents, Fred and Lil, chose to stay in their integrating neighborhood, overcoming previous prejudices as they formed friendships with their African American neighbors. This memoir is a riveting story of a community fractured by racial turmoil, an unraveling marriage, and a daughter's fight for sexual independence during the social upheavals of the 1960s.
