    Read Our Review of (1)Ne Drop: Shifting The Lens On Race


    Book Description:
    What exactly is Blackness?
    What does it mean to be Black?
    Is Blackness a matter of biology or consciousness?
    Who determines who is Black and who is not?
    Who’s Black, who’s not, and who cares?

    (1)ne Drop: Shifting the Lens on Race seeks to challenge narrow perceptions of Blackness as both an identity and lived reality. Featuring the perspectives of 60 contributors representing 25 different countries and countries of origin, and combining candid narratives with simple, yet striking, portraiture, this book provides living testimony to the diversity of Blackness.

    Featured on CNN Newsroom and the inspiration behind CNN’s Black in America 5 - "Who is Black in America?" - (1)ne Drop continues to spark much-needed dialogue about the intricacies and nuances of racial identity, and the influence of skin color politics on questions of who is Black and who is not.

    (1)ne Drop takes the very literal position that in order for us to see Blackness differently, we have to see Blackness differently.
