I’m currently reading The Autobiography of William Allen White, ©1946, and one advantage of reading old books is you learn new words.

Today I learned that an “octoroon” is a person who is one-eighth Black.

I can’t imagine that this is a word that I will get to use much, but it’s fascinating to me that at one time it would have been.
