Little could be more unusual in the 1920s than for white, upper-class women—"Miss Anne"—to seek to become, in effect, honorary blacks. This ground-breaking group biography uncovers, for the first time, the untold story of the white women of the black Harlem Renaissance.

Returning Miss Anne to her rightful place in the interracial history of the Harlem Renaissance, Kaplan's formidable work remaps the landscape of the 1920s, alters our perception of this historical moment, and brings Miss Anne to vivid life.
