This novel is about a man of prominance in a Northern Minnesota city who suddenly finds out he is descended from a Negro. He goes through a transformation of perspective on racial issues. In time, he declares himself publicly to be a "Negro". The effects of this declaration demonstrate the prejudices and ignorances of the US in the immediate post-WWII years.
