Annotation Inspired by a true story, this is a gripping account of how one woman risked everything for a chance at a better life. The daughter of a janitor and descendant of slaves, Anita Hemmings has always longed to attend Vassar College. With her olive complexion, she has successfully passed as white, a secret that would have banned her from admission. Now as a senior in 1897, her secret is threatened to be exposed by her roommate, Lottie, who is from one of New York's most prominent families whose sphere of influence is inescapable.
