For her entire life OHIO resident GAIL LUKASIK grew up believing that she was WHITE!!!

Her mother was a very fair-complexioned woman who was born in NEW ORLEANS to a BLACK father and a BI-RACIAL mother.

GAIL LUKASIK recently had a sit-down with  MEGYN KELLY on NBC morning show, TODAY.

She says her mother began Passing-for-White as a young adult.

However; in 1944, her mother met and  ater married a WHITE man who was a WORLD WAR II veteran. After her parents married, they relocated to OHIO, her mother never returned to her family's roots, and; spent the rest of her life as a White woman.

Dr. GAIL LUKASIK now lives with her husband in Illinois, and is the author of WHITE LIKE HER: My FAMILY'S STORY Of RACE And RACIAL PASSING, which examines her exploring her family secrets and the struggle of re-discovering and refining her own identity,
