Clearly Invisible will shock you with observations that are deep and agonizing because they present simple truths demonstrating that racial distinctions are “much ado about nothing.” The examples of passers were illuminating - the Crafts, Iola and Harry Leroy and Leo Felton. Their stories were especially revealing concerning the possible ways of handling presumed racial identity and the consequences. The book is an excellent, exciting academic examination of the history of passing. The ideas that it explores have such important current implications that the book is a “must read” since the multiracial phenomenon is one that America will have to deal with
