Example text

Mixed-race progeny was finally acknowledged by the United States Census in 1850 and for nearly a century was considered as an intermediary class, neither white nor black, before their official equation with blacks in 1920 (Bost 2003, 39). Since the term negro included anyone with black ancestry, passing for a white person was a secretive process.
