Product Overview

This insider''s portrait of an unusual American family grew out of Carolyn Wilkins'' struggles to redefine herself in light of the long-buried secrets she uncovered through her search to discover her family''s story. She grew up defending her racial identity because of her light complexion and wavy hair, yet her grandfather had been America''s first black assistant secretary of labor. Carolyn''s quest unearths her family''s generations-long quest for status and approval.
