Re: The Colored Aristocracy of St. Louis

Hi Hollis,

Thanks for sharing your relationship to some of the people portrayed in the book. I've ordered the updated version and look forward to reading Ms. Winch's research.

As you said - we can't judge those who "pass into white". Interestingly some folks now are coming back - or thanks to the work of genealogists, are now aware that categories of "black" and "white" in America are quite simplistic - as is the entire racial paradigm; as more family histories are unearthed the complexity increases.

Denise
