BROWN WHITE BLACK An American Family at the Intersection of Race, Gender, Sexuality, and Religion

by | Read by Nishta J. Mehra

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

In this audiobook, there is a disconnect between what author Nishta J. Mehra writes and how she conveys it in her narration. Mehra shares how she navigated the challenges of being an Indian-American growing up in the South, coming out to her family, and adopting an African-American baby with her wife. Her narration is decent but can sound flat--as if she is saying the words but not vocally embracing them. On occasion, listeners will catch snippets of what sounds like a smile or anguish in her narration, but they prove the exception. Her delivery doesn't enhance the story of her fascinating life and the insights she gleaned in grappling with the challenges of cultural prejudice.
