It's a phenomenon unique to communities of color - those with very light skin "passing" for white, particularly for African Americans, during the Jim Crow era.  On the next Another View we'll talk with Donna Drew Sawyer, author of Provenance:  A Novel, about what happens in the life of a fictional character who passes for white; and historian Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander who shares the history of this practice.  It's an Another View history lesson, Friday, October 6, 2017 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
