Description

The award-winning correspondent for the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour gives a moment-by-moment account of her walk into history when, as a 19-year-old, she challenged Southern law--and Southern violence--to become the first black woman to attend the University of Georgia. A powrful act of witness to the brutal realities of segregation.

An insider's look at the end of segregation in higher education in Georgia.
LibraryThing member mahallett
Well describes her loneliness at university in Georgia. There were just 2 blacks. Her black schooling perhaps didn't prepare her. She was good friends with Calvin trilling. She has a great smile.
