Michael Fosberg was raised in a working class Armenian American family led by his biological mother and adoptive father. When he was in his thirties, his parents decided to divorce. Michael responded to the split by going out in search of the long lost father he never knew and discovering that he was black.
Michael’s mother gave him information on where his biological father – and her first husband – last lived. Michael tracked him down by phone, and to his great relief, his father was happy to talk with him. But in addition to warmth and love, Michael’s father greeted him with something else, news that would forever change his ideas about who he thought he was.
