      Clarence Major is a mixed-race author of African-American
      ethnic lineage who was born in 1936 in Atlanta, Georgia.

      Majors is the author of the book
      "Come By Here: My Mother's Life".

      In this book, Majors describes the life of his mother,
      Inez, who was a fair-complexioned Mixed-race woman
      whose admixture included ½ African-American ethnic
      heritage and who also passed as a `mono'-racial
      "white" woman when she felt it was necessary.
