The true story of a woman who hid her identity to achieve her goals.

Born into an educated black family in Washington DC.  Her light skinned Mother raised her children as white as her father continued to pursue justice for his people.  With the weight of her family’s future on her shoulders, young Belle not only made a name for herself but thrived at making friends, exploring the arts, and developing a world class library.  This extraordinary lady’s story is not only inspiring for what she accomplished but for what she had to give up.
