Longtime resident of Surrey, Truman Green wrote and self-published the semi-autobiographical novel A Credit to Your Race (1973) in which a fifteen-year-old black porter's son falls in love with, and impregnates, the white girl next door. Set in Surrey, circa 1960, A Credit to Your Race is a disturbing and convincing portrayal of how the full weight of Canadian racism could come to bear on a youthful, interracial couple.
