Nancy W. Poling, Before It Was Legal: A Black-White Marriage (1945-1987) The Regulator welcomes Nancy Poling, author of Before It Was Legal: A Black-White Marriage (1945-1987). In 1986 Nancy interviewed Daniel and Anna Winters, the subjects of Before It Was Legal. It is not a happily-ever-after story but an honest portrayal of the love and hurt that any two people, not just a bi-racial couple, can encounter in an intimate relationship. It is the story of an independent white woman, a talented black man, and the times in which this remarkable couple lived. Nancy Werking Poling’s motivation to write comes from a concern for women’s struggles and triumphs. Their experiences have inspired her published works: Had Eve Come First and Jonah Been a Woman, a collection of short stories imagining male biblical heroes as women; Out of the Pumpkin Shell, a novel about women’s friendship and family secrets; and a book she edited, Victim to Survivor: Women Recovering From Clergy Sexual Abuse. She and her husband live in the mountains of western North Carolina. Event date: 09/14/2017 - 7:00pm
