America has a long history of people “passing” themselves off as a different race or gender. That was Brando Skyhorse’s experience as a Mexican American whose mother introduced him to people as an American Indian. He joins us to talk about why people choose to pass. He’s an editor of and contributor to the anthology “We Wear the Mask: 15 True Stories of Passing in America” (Beacon Press).
