Thelma has an opportunity to attend a prestigious boarding school. But when a snooty sorority girl is too insistent that Thelma join, she realizes they only want her because she's black.
Thelma has a chance of winning a scholarship to an exclusive boarding school in Michigan. However, even before she knows she has won, a snobby girl from a sorority comes around wanting Thelma to join and quickly discovers they just want her because she is black.
The family is thrilled beyond words when Thelma (BernNadette Stanis) is offered a scholarship to an exclusive -- and previously all-white -- Michigan boarding school. Still, everyone wonders just why Thelma has been afforded this rare honor. Their wondering comes to an abrupt and disturbing end when one of Thelma's snooty future classmates lets slip that the school needs to fulfill a racial quota -- in a hurry.
