Autobiographical novel of Margaret Foster, Ph.D., and her struggle to gain acceptance as a female African-American academic. "Rejecting the second-class citizenship she had been offered by the white university she had attended, Margaret finds work with a black college and there encounters a different and more subtle form of discrimination, far more painful, perhaps, because it is administered by "her own." She has innocently invaded territories claimed by a variety of "self-proclaimed gods" and therefore represents a threat to them" (from front flap).
