Biography

Jessica A. Krug, an associate professor of history at George Washington University (GWU) (adopting on occasion the pseudonymous – and self-described "salsa" – surname of La Bombalera), lived for years under an assumed race and ethnicity until she disclosed the truth in a September 3, 2020, essay on the blog website Medium. Having assumed identities such as that of a Bronx-bred Afro-"boricua" (Afro-Puerto Rican), Krug, in the blog post entitled "The Truth, and the Anti-Black Violence of My Lies", wrote, "I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness."
