Let's welcome Rachel Dolezal to the "White Negro" Hall of Fame, a place named in honor of Norman Mailer's seminal 1957 essay about race identity and the world of hipsters. We'll do a quick sprint through the exhibits, checking out some musicians, writers, and of course its founding theorist.  As you'll see, writes Charles Paul Freund, this Hall of Fame is really a labyrinth, and Ms. Dolezal's unexpected induction could require the place to build her a wing of her own.
