Never complete, white skin, African soul

H. Allan White,

My earliest and formative years were spent in an era of segregation and the early trials of desegregation. Despite an upbringing in the U.S. southend, I developed a keen interest in different cultures, different people…anything different. It was that interest that help instill in me wanderlust…a desire to go see what was on the other side of the world and what was just down the road. On a return from a journey to Botswana and Namibia, I read a poem from which my six words were captured.
