Bethesda Barnes has reached a point in life where she at last feels comfortable. She loves her family, despite a stormy relationship with her mother. For romance, there{u2019}s Lloyd Bounds, a devoted postal clerk. Although, cards on the table, Beth wouldn{u2019}t mind a ring. Ask Beth what part of her life is truly fulfilling and she just might answer ?my beautiful career.? After landing a plum teaching position at an Ivy League college, Beth focuses her energies on her students, even the obnoxious ones, encouraging them all to ?always strive for more.? Though driven and dedicated, Beth is fairly detached from her faculty colleagues, well aware that she is one of the only black faces in a sea of white. Despite the disparity, she loves her job-until an incident on campus forces her to confront society{u2019}s uglier side. Late one night, four African American sorority sisters are called vile names and assailed with garbage. The students decide to charge the boys with assault and racial insensitivity for violating the university{u2019}s harassment code. They ask Beth to be their faculty advisor for the case. When she accepts, she walks into a racially charged firestorm of heated protest and dangerous threats. One of the boys is a skinhead who seems to have sympathizers in high places. When the case goes national, even liberal newspapers criticize the victims and their cause. Though some of girls drop out of the case, and her personal life is blindsided by tragedy, Beth perseveres
