Join Candidly Candace for her interview with Karyn Langhorne Folan. DON'T BRING HOME A WHITE BOY: And Other Notions that Keep Black Women From Dating Out by Karyn Langhorne Folan will be released by Simon & Schuster in February 2, 2010. The book is an attempt to delve deeply into the roots of our cultural resistance to black women and white men. It's an effort to harness the theories and emotions behind the controversy, analyze them and offer them up for deeper discussion. The title reflects the deep and long-standing cultural message stamped deep into every black daughter-"Don't Bring Home a White Boy." At least on some level, these cultural messages play role in why so many African American women are single. Callers are welcome to call in with questions/comments 347-996-3381. There will be a live 15 minute chat online following the broadcast. Black women have more choices than we realize-and it's time to pursue all of them-just as black men do. This book is written in the sincere belief that it's time for African American women to broaden their horizons beyond black men and become open to experiencing romantic happiness from any man whose character and interests are compatible with their own... even if that man's skin happens to be white.
