NPR piece about Passing, presented by Heidi Durrow

Hi folks,
Yesterday on National Public Radio, Heidi Durrow, one of the Mixed Chicks we watched on YouTube and author of The Girl Who Fell from The Sky, presented an essay on Nella Larsen's Passing. Extra credit (5 HW points) for anyone who reads or listens to her essay and writes a short reflection (50 words or so) on what, for Durrow, is the most important message in Passing.

Here's the link:
Heidi Durrow (whose mother was Danish...Nella Larsen also has a familial connection to Denmark, which she writes about in her semi-autobiographical novel, Quicksand)
