You would think that the Web would contain all known information about an Emmy-winning show from a major network. But the questioner below could not get an answer to the question "What happened to Mahree Bok?"
The movie ended with Mahree back at home with a new attitude and appreciation for all human beings...but what I want to know is what really happend to Mahree. There have been rumors that she 1. never existed and was part of a fiction piece from the Dellum's daughter 2. existed (her real name was Carrie) and was never heard from again or 3. picking up from 2 was beaten and murdered at the age of 16.
Perhaps if I find the Piper Dellums story I'll find out more - or maybe not. One wonders why. (Of course, I'm still confused about why the story has a 2003 date, while the movie has a 2000 date.)
If you are scratching your head, this may (or may not) help:
Piper Dellums, daughter of Bay Area congressman Ron Dellums, describes the summer a South African exchange student came to live with the family in Washington, D.C. Expecting a Black South African, the family was shocked when a white girl arrived and treated them like servants until they both decided to learn from one another.
