#authorlifemonthchallenge Day 25 - Research: I am choosing to highlight Miss Fredi Washington. She was an actress in the 20's, born in Savannah GA, and had fair skin and green eyes. Instead of passing for white, she proudly stated her race, but many who could pass as white did, and decided (or were forced) to abandon their heritage as a result. I loved doing the research for #BOHW because of all the beautiful vintage black Hollywood and vaudeville pictures. Miss Fredi, though, was a treat to learn about, and I enjoy the prospect of using her story and others to help open healing conversations with my book.
