In his book, Talty, a noted writer for The New York Times Magazine, Spin and Vibe, explores the way in which black and white culture have interacted in America. Mulatto America dissects many historical examples of people who crossed the cultural color line, for example W.E.B. Du Bois, Dorothy Dandridge, Elvis Presley and Eminem. Talty’s book covers a wide range of phenomena, from interracial lovers of the slavery era to the pillars of the modern hip-hop generation, and works to demonstrate how black and white cultures have mixed to form today’s American culture.
