Soledad O’Brien recently addressed how she felt when her “Blackness” was challenged during an interview with Rev. Jesse Jackson. O’Brien who identifies herself as a Black woman, is of Afro-Cuban and Irish decent. O’Brien is a renown advocate for Black and Latino people, notably for her work with CNN’s “Black In America”.
Some measure “Blackness” as the degree to which an individual has, expresses, or acknowledges their ancestral, physical, cultural, and social ties to Black people. Others measure it solely on aesthetic values, like skin tone, facial features, etc.
