The author decides to try passing back into white society, as now his heart sickened at the thought of any more hate. He stays in his room for the whole day and at night goes out for his food. He does so because he does not want to expose his skin to the sunlight, as he is waiting for his complexion to lighten.
Today’s entry in the dairy is about a historic decision by the author to stop the medication and allow his skin to become lighter gradually with time, as he has had more than enough of hate and hostility from the whites. This is a turning point in the book for the author after three weeks of excruciating Negroness.
