"When a reporter from the Chicago Herald offered to do a story on her if she agreed to pass as white, she took her mother and niece along with her for the interview. She was laughing as they walked into the reporter's office. Pointing to Susan and Marion, who were dark-skinned, she said,
"This is my mother and this is my niece. And you want me to pass?"
