James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938)

This remarkable novel documents the life of an American of mixed ethnicity who moves freely in society — from the rural South to the urban North and eventually, Europe. A revolutionary work which not only probes the psychological aspects of “passing for white” but also examines the American caste and class system.
