The book documents the Danusers and other couples’ experiences of love across color lines.

Is race or skin color really an issue in a marriage or relationship? Should someone marry outside their race or culture? Mary Ellen Danuser, in her book titled “Freedom to Choose: Is Skin Color Really An Issue?” talks about her own interracial marriage as well as other couples’ stories “to enlighten society as to the reasons that individuals choose to become involved with someone outside their race or culture and the beauty that can be found within these relationships.”
Danuser and her husband, a white man, knew they were compatible with each other because of what they had in common. Their marriage proves that “it is not the color of one’s skin but the person within” (a phrased coined by her husband). The author shares the challenges of interracial marriage as well as people’s reactions that include disapproval from white women and black men.
“Freedom to Choose: Is Skin Color Really An Issue?” Could not have been released at the right time when race remains a hot-button issue and that interracial marriages are on the rise in America 50 years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Loving v. Virginia.
Mary Ellen Danuser’s “Freedom to Choose: Is Skin Color Really An Issue?” will be displayed in the upcoming 2018 New York Rights Fair on May 30, 2018. Available at amazon:

About the Author
Mary Ellen Danuser served her country for twelve years in the US Army as a medical specialist and an army recruiter. She is a retired insurance professional and married to a wonderful man named John (Dakota)-a retired Marine officer and commercial pilot. She and her husband live in Colorado. They enjoy traveling, attending car races, dining out, going to outdoor jazz concerts, reading, walking, and sightseeing. She was born in Springfield, Illinois, and grew up in Vandalia, Missouri. She is a proud grandmother of two grandchildren, Cierra and Dominique, and mother of one daughter, Marko Christene.

She started writing her book two plus years ago and eventually laid it aside. The beginning of 2014, she decided that it was time to complete the book and have it published to educate society why people choose to date and marry outside their race. What prompted her to start, write, and complete this book were the experiences that she and her husband encountered whenever they were out and about, regardless of where they were out and about. In her upcoming book, not only will she tell their story, but she has seized the opportunity to interview a various number and range of couples to share their stories as well. The couple’s/individual’s identity in my book will remain anonymous, but the stories are true-to-life experiences.
