Fiction writer and memoirist Bliss Broyard speaks about and reads from her memoir, One Drop: My Fathers Hidden Life—A Story of Race and Family Secrets. The daughter of New York Times literary critic Anatole Broyard, Bliss Broyard learned when she was in her early twenties and shortly before her father died in 1990, that she had African ancestry. One Drop explores the reasons behind her fathers choice to pass for white and reveals her own struggle to come to terms with what all of this means for her own identity and sense of self. Her visit to the University of Richmond was sponsored largely in part by the Richmond Quest.
