“Outsider: Stories of Growing Up Black in the Adirondacks” details Alice Paden Green’s experiences as her family grappled with poverty, race and acceptance in the mid-20th century. This memoir, prompted by a recent gathering of Blacks and whites in the Adirondacks for a discussion on race relations, explores perceptions of Black families in the ’50s and ’60s and whether Blacks are still viewed as outsiders or welcomed with open arms in this four-season, recreational playground dominated by white residents.

This book adds to the narrative on whether more work should be done to diversify the Adirondack region.
