In a world where it was commonplace to see signs that read "whites only" or "Jews not allowed," William Cohen was born in Bangor, Maine, the eldest son of a Jewish father and a Protestant Irish mother. Janet Langhart, an African-American, was raised in Indianapolis, Indiana by her single parent mother, a Southern Baptist. These two people, from different regions, races, and religions, are both witnesses to and targets of the social tensions of the day. Their stories are rich and profound; at times they are amusing, at others harrowing. Bill would be elected to serve his country as a U.S. Congressman and Senator, and Janet would become a prominent television personality, activist, and highly respected businesswoman and author. Opposites in so many ways--in color, faith and culture--seemingly a bundle of contradictions, they meet in 1974, become friends, and eventually marry in 1996, in the U.S. Capitol.--From publisher description.… (mere)

4339. Love in Black and White A Memoir of Race, Religion, and Romance, by William S. Cohen with Janet Langhart Cohen (read 13 Jul 2007) This is a memoir, told in alternate chapters till the authors marry in 1996. Some of the early events related in his life are not very compelling, tho there is much which is. She is often full of rage, no doubt rightfully so, but not really helpful to her cause--which is that people not allow race or religion to dictate how they behave to others. The account of his political career is of high interest, and one is impressed by his decency and competence as an adult--if not as a juvenile. ( )
