This book seeks to open the secrets of my experience with oppression as a Black woman who moved successfully through a series educational institutions as both student and professor. I attempt to reveal the secrets/realizations about my life; from them I derive lessons for others who may share my sense of distance from the mainstream, yet who seek to survive and thrive there.
