During the time in which this novel takes place, many women who were biracial were able to potentially pass for white in order to obtain the benefits and privates that came from being white.
Nella Larson herself was also born in Chicago, where part of her story takes place. There was, and still is today, a lot of controversy dealing with African Americans and white privilege in the city as seen in this novel.
The South Side area of Chicago separated into gangs of black and white rioters.
The black community of Chicago was outraged at the lack of involvement of the police regarding the murder of the young black man. This riot lasted until August 3rd and resulted 23 black deaths and 15 white deaths, coming to a total of 38 people dead due to this public outrage.
Since this incident, the subject of white privilege and discrimination of African Americans by the police has been a touchy subject in Chicago.
Even today on the news we hear about how people are rioting for justice against wrongful actions taken by police against black people. There were both risks to being a black woman at the time, and also many privileges and benefits to being a white woman. So it is easy to understand why these women went through life passing as white since it was a physical possibility for them.Hamlet's Ghost talks about the horrors of purgatory, a place Catholics would have believed in and understood, but Protestants did not believe in it.

A visual echo of 33 AD, the time Jesus tells Hamlet to set his time machine for, appears on a large screen at the back of the stage just as Hamlet starts the machine—namely, Leni Riefenstahl’s film Triumph of the Will chronicling the Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg in (Figure ).
