Rahawa Haile, subject of the essay โ€œGoing It Aloneโ€ about hiking the 2,139 mile Appalachian Trail (Outside Magazine 4/2017).

An excerpt:

โ€œI knew it,โ€ he says. โ€œYouโ€™re not black.โ€

I say that of course I am. โ€œNone more black,โ€ I weakly joke.

โ€œNot really,โ€ he says. โ€œYouโ€™re African, not black-black. Blacks donโ€™t hike.โ€
