"A Chosen Exile: A History of Racial Passing in

American Life" by Assistant Professor Allyson Hobbs


“In narrating the lives of Americans at the border of whiteness, Hobbs illuminates our understanding of our country’s tortured race history and of the injustices that drove people to make the ultimate migration—out of the tyranny of enslavement and the terrors of Jim Crow to the costly privilege of the larger white world. Their anguish, alienation, and constant fear of discovery are brilliantly and painfully rendered in this important book, and, through them, we see the arbitrariness of race and the origins of racial divisions that we live with  to this day.”  

-- Isabel Wilkerson, author of The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.
