translation

“I learned to slip back and forth between my black and white worlds,
  understanding that each possessed its own language and customs and
  structures of meaning, convinced that with a bit of translation on my
  part the two worlds would eventually cohere.”
 
   -Barack Obama, *Dreams From My Father*
