White Like Her

Hosted by Vanessa Echols

Author Gail Lukasik is a mystery writer who uncovered a mystery in her own family. As an adult, she discovered that her mother was passing, living her life as a white woman. Her mother's closely guarded secret came to light when Gail began a genealogy search and found her maternal grandfather's race listed as Black in census records in New Orleans. We talk to Gail about her discovery and her book, WHITE LIKE HER. https://www.gaillukasik.com/
