Rozelle Quinn is so fair-skinned that she can pass for white. Her ten children are mostly light, too. Everyone in the small Georgia town in which she lives knows that they have different fathers. She favors her light children, but it is Tangy Mae, the darkest of them all, who is the brightest and the only one desperate to get an education. Even in rural Pakersfield they have heard of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in the case of Brown v. Board of Education, though they are in no hurry to comply with it.

Rozelle wants thirteen-year-old Tangy Mae to take over her jobs: days, doing house cleaning for whites; nights, servicing men, white and black, at the “Farmhouse.” And Rozelle is not a woman whose commands can lightly be ignored. She is a creature of moods, possessive of all her children, desperate for their love, demanding of utter loyalty and obedi ence, harshly repressive of any signs of independence. They are the only thing in her life that she can control.

THE DARKEST CHILD shows us a world misshapen by years of oppression in which family is powerful yet offers little kindness or comfort. It shows us a world in which attitudes of prejudice have been adopted by its victims, and the resulting struggle of those who are darker complected is a struggle not only against outsiders, but against the closest of kin.

This is the story from an era when life’s possibilities for an African-American were unimaginably different.
