Listen: Julie Lythcott-Haims Reads Exerpts from Her Memoir

Bliss Davis, Content Coordinator, The City Club of Cleveland

Growing up the daughter of an African-American father and a white mother, in Palisades, New York and Madison, Wisconsin, Julie Lythcott-Haims had to navigate a white world. Her newest book, Real American: A Memoir, details her journey in that world - from being a mixed-race teen to her years as a Stanford undergraduate and Harvard Law School, and traveling to Ghana in 2015 to see where her father proposed to her mother and beyond.

Here, Lythcott-Haims reads excerpts from her memoir.
