"An inspiring and riveting tale." --Patrik Henry Bass, Senior Editor, Essence   After a career of many firsts, journalist Gerald Boyd became the first black managing editor of the New York Times . But the dream ended abruptly with Boyd's forced resignation in the wake of scandal over Jayson Blair, a reporter who had plagiarized and fabricated news stories.   A rare inside view of power and behind-the-scenes politics at the nation's premier newspaper, My Times in Black and White is the inspirational tale of a man who rose from urban poverty to the top of his field, struggling against whitedominated media, tearing down racial barriers, and all the while documenting the most extraordinary events of the latter twentieth century.
