Ann Jenkins is the pride of her African-American family; smart,
beautiful, and born with blue eyes and blonde hair.
Though her grandmother and father are happy because she represents
years of passing down light skin and marrying well, Shanika's mother
insists on her name reflecting her African-American heritage so that
she will always be proud of who she is. When Shanika gets the
opportunity to work for a PR firm in New York, she finds that
everyone assumes she is white; she also notices that being white has
it advantages, from getting respect at work to getting picked up by
a cab when other African-Americans are passed by.
