The Coyaba Chronicles: Reflections on the Black Experience in the Twentieth Century is both personal memoir and a powerful meditation on what W.E.B. Dubois defined at the beginning of the century as "the problem of the colour line; of the relations between the lighter and darker races of man". Using Dubois as a point of departure, Abrahams writes passionately, about the inherent 'wrongness' of racial hatred and contemplates such timeless questions as: "Why was colour the most crucial issue of our century?" and "When will we get over the deep psychic and emotional damage done by the racial experience?".
