Fade to Black…and White

Are black and white colors? This question was asked and answered in a brief but engrossing article I read recently. The answer is yes and no! As I understand it, white is all the colors of light together; black is the absence of light. Yet, in the manner humans perceive color (the article describes it succinctly), black and white have a rightful place in our crayon box!
