This chapter narrates Regina's romances and culminates in her marriage. Regina, like many young women in New York City, had a dating life that was complicated, diverse, and mysterious. She had more than one fiancé, a long distance relationship, a possible affair with a Jewish writer, and a secret lover—the author of a “Dear Reggie” letter who may have been the one she truly loved though her family disapproved of the liaison. During the early years of her marriage, Regina was involved with the local Rho chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, an African American sorority, and served as the president. Famous past and present members of the sorority include Lena Horne, Mary McLeod Bethune, Mary Church Terrell, Barbara Jordan, Judith Jamison, Wilma Rudolph, and Nikki Giovanni, among others.
