A multigenerational saga of three families crossing the racial divide
and an extraordinary new account of the American experience

"The Invisible Line shines light on one of the most important, but too often hidden, aspects of American history and culture: how families traveled back and forth across supposedly fixed racial categories. Deeply researched and elegantly presented, Sharfstein's narrative of three families negotiating America's punishing racial terrain is a must read for all who are interested in the construction of race in the United States."

— Annette Gordon-Reed, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hemingses of Monticello
