Author Bliss Broyard explores the color line

"Her father's hidden past: A color line obscured Bliss Broyard's heritage"
The Boston Globe , by By David Mehegan, Globe Staff, November 6, 2007

Excerpt (click on link for full article):
Now Bliss Broyard, 41, after years of research and personal exploration, has told the story from the family perspective in "One Drop: My Father's Hidden Life - A Story of Race and Family Secrets." While the book is "about" Anatole Broyard, his family's history, and the cultural and racial history of south Louisiana, its main subject is the emotional landscape around the color line, which Bliss Broyard never expected to explore.
