    I loved Charlayne Hunter-Gault's early autobiography. My impression is that she grew up sheltered from a lot of the harsh realities of what it means to be a black person in the South perhaps because of her father's standing as a minister. I cannot imagine what if is like to be the first black person admitted to a very hostile southern university and having to attend classes under the aegis of the National Guard. She certainly was not a person who could be kept "in her place."

    An interesting bio from the view point of the history of the times of which she was a part. Otherwise the details of everyday life are somewhat uninspiring.

    Hunter-Gault's story is inspiring to all women who must transcend the prejudice and stereotyping imposed upon us by a society that has yet to learn to appreciate diversity. African, Asian, Hispanic and Caucasian-American women - all have made unique and indelible contributions to women's history and to the rich cultural history of our country. We should celebrate them in our schools and in our hearts!

    I bought this book for my college English class, and it was simply wonderful! It was so interesting to read about the first African-American woman to integrate the University of Georgia. It put things in perspective and helped me compare how life back then was different to how it is now.
