The viewer chooses where to go in an interactive design, viewing content in a non-traditional, non-linear fashion. However the content is totally controlled by the author, not the reader. The content is pre-determined while the viewer controls the viewing path in real time. The Dawn At My Back: Memoir of a Black Texas Upbringing outlines three parallel stories of a mother, a daughter, and a society by detailing racism's impact on each element. The concept is to design a combination Book/DVD-ROM/Website that allows the reader direct interaction with the narrative.
