The Time of Our Singing by Richard Powers
The Time of Our Singing begins in 1939, when David Strom, a Jewish refugee whose family will be killed in the Holocaust, meets and falls in love with Delia Daley, a black singer from Philadelphia. They marry at a time when interracial couples are despised and harassed and they choose to raise their children "beyond race." Their sons become classical musicians unaware of what it means to be black in America. When the race riots of the 1960s explode across the country, their daughter rebels and becomes a black activist. The Time of Our Singing tackles headlong the issues of race, family, and identity. It's a novel the New York Observer says "is beautifully, meticulously crafted."
