Cover of Book

This is a moving memoir that captures the journey of a woman who came of age as America struggled to deliver on its vision of racial and gender equality.  Lillian Lincoln’s story is not uniquely hers. It is a great American story that captures the struggle and triumph of the generation of educated African Americans who created the reality that with opportunity and preparation all things are possible. This book is must reading for men and women who seek inspiration and the enduring lessons of succeeding against the odds.
