Since the release of d. E. Rogers sixth novel, Crossing Color Lines, there has been much discussion regarding the question that leaves readers pondering, “If you had the opportunity to choose your race, would you remain true to your birthright, or would you opt for the race that you believe can provide you with the greatest benefit?”

This is a topic rarely discussed, yet d. E. Rogers has shown his ability to engage readers into discussing it openly by launching a d. E. Rogers Network on Ning.com.  The d. E.

On Thursday, August 19, 2010, d. E. Rogers made an appearance on The Bev Smith Show. Bev Smith, the host of The Bev Smith Show and former host of BET’s “The Voices” held an exclusive interview with Rogers.

The Bev Smith show is heard on the American Urban Radio Networks and is known as “the Queen of Late Night Talk.” Bev Smith is the only African-American woman radio talk show host who has a nationally syndicated show in the country. She addresses hot topics and social and global issues. She is well-known and highly trusted in the African-American community to deliver critical information and entertainment news.

During the interview, Bev Smith stated,

“Every once in awhile you come across a fiction story that does not read like fiction. It has you intrigued from the 1st page to the last page. [Crossing Color Lines] does not read like fiction. It pulls you into a discussion [about race]. And the topic is a topic that is very rarely if ever discussed. It asks the question, if you had the features to pass for another race for the benefits would you? [Telling this kind of story is] bold at this time when the issue of race has polarized our country. Crossing Color Lines is a fascinating concept for a movie. It’s a great book for your book club. I think it’s awesome. d. E. Rogers, you are going to be big with this book.”

Author d. E. Rogers celebrates the release of the Crossing Color Lines book trailer.  This powerful presentation brings Crossing Color Lines and issues surrounding race to the forefront in real life.

This presentation takes you into The World of David by starting with a snapshot representing the history of race in America and continues in an intimate moment with d. E. Rogers describing the synopsis of the book. “I am very excited to release this new book trailer. Readers get a visual picture of what Crossing Color Lines is all about. It is more than a fiction novel; it transpires race issues that still need to be discussed openly today,” states d. E. Rogers.

Crossing Color Lines was released in June 2010 and follows the story of Chase Cain, someone who as a child witnessed the brutal hanging of his father. Since he has lighter skin, he is able to use it in a way that he believes will be his advantage, and ‘pass’ as a white man. He sets out to gain all the things he desires – friends, love, and wealth – but ultimately the way he has chosen to live his life ends up causing his demise.

The book trailer presents Crossing Color Lines gently yet coercively. The short presentation leaves you contemplating the question Crossing Color Lines proposes and with an appetite for more.

Crossing Color Lines is available on Amazon, Cuschcity, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Baker & Taylor, and at theworldofdavid.com. Purchase your copy today.

If you had the opportunity to choose your race, would you remain true to your birthright, or would you opt for the race into which you were born?

That is a question that the main character must answer, live and experience in Crossing Color Lines.

I am excited to announce the upcoming release of Crossing Color Lines on June 22nd. This book focuses on real-life drama and looks at race issues in the eye, bringing them to the forefront in a compelling and riveting manner.
