What would happen to the race problem in America if black people turned white? Would everybody be happy? These questions and more are answered hilariously Schuyler's satiric romp. It is the story of Max Disher, a dapper black rogue of an insurance man who, through a scientific transformation process, becomes Matthew Fisher, a white man. Matt dreams up a scam that allows him to become the leader of the Knights of Nordica, a white supremacist group, as well as to marry the white woman who rejected him when he was black.
