White Like Her: My Family’s Story of Race and Racial Passing – Gail Lukasik, October 11, 2018:

Gail will talk about her book, White Like Her, as well as her two appearances on PBS’ Genealogy Roadshow and the discovery of her unknown family. She will share how her personal and genealogical journey to uncover the truth of her mother’s racial heritage led her to a deeper understanding of race and racial identity. Interweaving her mother’s personal story with social history, she will show the impact of race and racial passing in America. The Washington Post named White Like Her as one of the most inspiring stories of 2017.
