Chronicles white impersonations of blackness in the US, revealing the ways experiments in racial empathy obscure the structural character of racism and instead frame personal experiences of otherness and individual awakening as racial progress. Highly recommended.--Choice
In this substantial and impressive examination of race and performance, Alisha Gaines constructs a genealogy of cross-racial empathy that raises the stakes for how we represent and receive black bodies in the twenty-first century.--Marvin McAllister, author of Whiting Up
Fresh and incisive, Black for a Day delivers a smart examination of what's at stake when people attempt to cross racial lines temporarily. Alisha Gaines's nuanced examination on the many complicated layers that inform the 'black experience' makes this book a timely and important read.--Jonathan Holloway, author of Jim Crow Wisdom
