Hello, My question is in regards to a scene in my book, one in which the main character a white female is being tutored for dance by a male American of African descent. As an American I know of the inter-racial struggles between whites and blacks from our founding all the way until the Civil Rights Era (and event today sadly) and know there was a period in time that in (particularly the south) marriage relationships between whites and blacks mostly forbidden. My story takes place in an unnamed north-east city (Think New York City or Chicago) in 1928. I've done a fair amount of research regarding anachronisms and historical accuracy and say I'm very spot on which brings me to the question of: Would having a white woman tutored by a black man be considered TO unrealistic? That is taking into consideration upbringing (would most whites just be taught that blacks are not to be friends with), social stigma (if anyone found out the black male would be in trouble) even in the context of the American of African descent teaching dances classes... if that would even be allowed. Would a black southerner even want to teach a white woman anything due to resentment? Any resources or input would be greatly helpful!
