Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed journalist Daniel J. Sharfstein cuts through centuries of myth to deliver this groundbreaking work. Defining their identities first as people of color and later as whites, three American families provide a lens for understanding how people thought about and experienced race and how these ideas and experiences evolved—how the definitions of black and white changed over time.

Incredible book extremely we'll read

Absolutely fascinating and amazing research and amazing stories. The very first chapter is a tiny bit challenging because it takes place in the mid-1700s and the content is very unfamiliar, but after that the book soars One of the most thought-provoking and interesting books I have heard in years.
