White-to-Black: Racechange and Authenticity, from John Howard Griffin to Rachel Dolezal
AbstractThis article deals with the challenges posed by transgressing racial boundaries, where the perceptions and evaluations of such acts as "(in)authentic" provide a highly important dimension. Autobiographical texts by John Howard Griffin and grace Halsell are examined, in an effort to show the effect of the racial "passing" experience on subjectivity.
