Event description

Description

In the Antebellum South, communities of free mixed-race Americans were not uncommon. Neither “black” nor “white” by modern conceptions of race, these communities suffered when Reconstruction solidified racial divides, and ideas like the “one drop” rule and Jim Crow laws began to take root. Author Daniel Brook explores these communities in his book, The Accident of Color, and dives into how a more complex idea of ethnic identity can challenge the oppression of racial absolutism that continues to exist today.
