Welcome to the site of Erin Goseer Mitchell, author of Born Colored: Life Before Bloody Sunday.

This collection of essays captures the tyranny of and triumph of growing up as a colored girl in the Deep South when segregation was the law - one generation before the civil rights movement.

This collection movingly reveals the insights of a child as well as the hard-won wisdom of a survivor.

Erin Goseer Mitchell was born in Selma, Alabama. She grew up there and in Fitzgerald, Georgia, one generation before the Civil Rights Movement began.
