The House Behind the Cedars
Great book that covers post-Civil War race and class in the South. A particularly detailed and nuanced look at how the lightness or darkness of ones skin can impact ones social standing, even within a race. Unfortunately, the sad final lesson at the end of the book was: if you are an African-American woman you get screwed by both racism AND misogyny.
