The author discussed his book, Colored People: A Memoir, published by Alfred A. Knopf. The book details what it was like to be of African descent between 1950 and 1970, when "colored" was the name used by members of the race themselves. Professor Gates said he would like to write a book about each subsequent name, such as "Negro" and "black."
