Aprašymas

As seen on The Today Show and in the Washington Post's most inspiring stories of the year!

“Important in helping us understand America’s complex racial history.”—Kenyatta D. Berry, Host of PBS’s Genealogy Roadshow


Includes a new afterword by bestselling author and Philadelphia Inquirer journalist Solomon Jones

In the historical context of the Jim Crow South, author Gail Lukasik explores her African-American mother’s decision to pass, how she hid her secret even from her own husband, and the price she paid for choosing whiteness.

Haunted by her mother’s fear and shame, Gail embarks on a quest to uncover her mother’s racial lineage, tracing her family back to eighteenth-century colonial Louisiana. In coming to terms with her decision to publicly out her mother, Gail changed how she views race and heritage.

With a foreword written by Kenyatta Berry, host of PBS’s Genealogy Roadshow, and brand-new afterword written by bestselling author Solomon Jones, White Like Her is a unique and fascinating story of self-discovery and redemption that breaks down barriers.
