For generations in this country, a black person has been commonly recognized as someone with any known Black ancestry, the “one-drop rule.” This beautiful book explores whether the social and political landscape has changed in recent times. Sixty individuals, shown in stunning photographs, together explore the diversity of Blackness. They have all had their identity called into question simply because they do not fit neatly into the stereotypical “Black appearance,” and all see themselves as part of a larger Black identity.
