CLEARLY INVISIBLE: RACIAL PASSING AND THE COLOR OF CULTURAL IDENTITY


Submitted by syntaxfactory on August 2, 2012 - 5:50am


Marcia Alesan Dawkins, mdawki01@hotmail.com

Today my book, CLEARLY INVISIBLE: RACIAL PASSING AND THE COLOR OF CULTURAL IDENTITY is released, and I need your help.
This is my first book (published by Baylor University Press). It's like giving birth to a child except it took longer and I don't have to start a college fund. In all other ways, however, the commitment is the same, and I'm writing to ask for your help in making this research project and provocative, full color conversation-starter a best-selling book.
