A White Lie is based on Karin Tanabe's 2016 novel The Gilded Years and will tell the nonfiction story of Anita Hemmings, the first African-American woman to graduate from Vassar College.

Though the daughter of a janitor and descendent of slaves, with her olive complexion and dark hair, Anita was able to "pass" as white when she set out to attend the prestigious Vassar during the late 1890s. She even finds romance with a rich Harvard student, but he (nor anyone else) know her real identity.
