Change of Heart: A Black Man A White Woman A Heart Transplant, and A True Love Story
- #17835 in Biography & Memoir
New York Times best-selling author Mitchell Fink traces the concurrent stories of Robert Dunn and Dorothy Moore. Dunn experienced hatred and bigotry from an early age as the youngest member of the first black family to move into a Queens, New York neighborhood inhabited mostly by white Irish-Catholics. At precisely the same time, Moore was being abandoned by her Irish-Catholic parents and left to grow up in an orphanage.
These two extraordinary stories became one in the spring of 1998 when the world-renown heart surgeon, Dr. Mehmet Oz, implanted Dorothy Moore’s heart into Robert Dunn’s chest.
The compelling events prior to the transplant, and the terror Robert Dunn walked through once he realized his life was saved by a white woman who may have grown up among the same kind of people who brutalized him as a child, is what led to his transformation as a man and his true Change of Heart.
