Hired by J.P. Morgan to be curator of his book and art collection, Belle da Costa Greene becomes a fixture in New York City society, known for her impeccable taste and shrewd negotiation skills. But Belle has a secret: she is actually the daughter of Richard Greener, the first Black graduate of Harvard and a well-known advocate for equality. Belle’s complexion isn’t dark because of her alleged Portuguese heritage that lets her pass as white—her complexion is dark because she is African American. The Personal Librarian tells the story of an extraordinary woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, and shares the lengths she must go to—for the protection of her family and her legacy—to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives.
