Footnotes with Grace Wang: The Vanishing Half

Jazz Soul
Host: Grace Wang

In the latest edition of Footnotes, a show playing music inspired from books, Grace Wang takes us through The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennet. A novel about race, gender and colourism, it follows the lives of a pair of light-skinned twins; one marries a black man and has a daughter with skin that is 'blueblack', and the other passes over as white.
