    Elena Khanga, a Russian TV talk show host in the 90s, tells the story of her fascinating ancestry Her mother was the daughter of a Jewish woman and a black American man who had come to the USSR during the Depression to escape racism and work in the modernization of agriculture Her father was a student from Africa studying in the USSR All of this makes her mostly black, and Jewish, and also native Russian a combination that gives her a unique outlook.
