Passing

Show Synopsis

Originally published in 1929, Passing tells the troublesome relationship between two African-American woman who are light enough to pass for white. Irene Redfield marries an African-American doctor and moves to Harlem. Clare Kendy, on the other hand, marries a bigoted white man -- never telling him of her true heritage. When the two women meet, after decades of separation, they impact each other lives in ways that neither would have imagined.

The Pageturner

Apr 9, 2007

1929 Book Still Sends Chills

Nella Larsen truly caught the entire aspect of passing. I read this book a few years ago and even though there was a significant time gap between the publication and my reading it. Through dialogue and non-verbal actions, this book really takes the reader into the moment and the ending, O! the ending leaves one asking, "What REALLY happened?" It should be recommended when studying on the affect of colorism within the Black race.
