June Cross was born in 1954 to Norma Booth, a glamorous, aspiring white actress, and James Stump Cross, a well-known black comedian. Sent by her mother to be raised by black friends when she was four years old and could no longer pass as white, June was plunged into the pain and confusion of a family divided by race. Secret Daughtertells her story of survival. It traces Junes astonishing discoveries about her mother and about her own fierce determination to thrive. This is an inspiring testimony to the endurance of love between mother and daughter, a child and her adoptive parents, and the power of community.

June Crossis a journalist and an award-winning television producer whose numerous projects include This Far by Faith: African American Spiritual Journeys. She is currently an associate professor of journalism at Columbia University.
