Product description...

An Honorable Life in a Challenging World

Born in the segregated deep South, Mary Davis grew up in a world where she was unwelcome, except in the black community. Even as a child, she was unwilling to accept the idea that she was inferior in any way—and her life journey has been a continual testament to her remarkable capacity for achievement, integrity, and honesty. From the cotton fields to boot camp barracks, from pursuing educational goals to seeking justice in her own home town as a private citizen, from rejecting racism aimed at her parents to standing up for her rights against continuing prejudice, Mary has always provided an example of diligence and honor. Travel with her from the Jim Crow laws to a new world in the US Army, and then back again to the outdated attitudes of the deep South…and stand with her as she faces life on her own uncompromising terms.
