    About The Author: Jenni Spangler writes children’s books with a magical twist. She loves to take real and familiar places and events and add a layer of mystery and hocus-pocus. She was elected for the first year of the ‘Write Mentor’ scheme and lives in . No single image embodied the project better than The Vanishing Race, his picture of Navajo riding off into the dusty distance. To Curtis the photo epitomized the plight of the Indians, who were “passing into the darkness of an unknown future.” Alas, Curtis’ encyclopedic work did more than convey the theme—it cemented a stereotype.

    The Vanishing Half tells a story of identity without prescription, but nonetheless provides a meditation on the nuance of race that feels important, now more than ever. It’s the kind of novel. Christopher M. Lyman’s The Vanishing Race and Other Illusions: Photographs of Indians by Edward S. Curtis () fired the opening salvo by documenting the ways Curtis manipulated his subjects to create images of the timeless Indian.

      “The Vanishing Half,” by Brit Bennett, considers fraught questions of racial identity, personal freedom and community in a story that stretches from the Jim Crow South to s Los Angeles. Yes, I would like to receive email from the Smithsonian. Deny submit.
