Summary
"This autobiography shares the life story of Mildred Pitts Walter, an award-winning author of twenty-one books for young readers and a lifetime activist in the civil rights and human rights movements. Born in Louisiana in 1922 and raised at the height of the Jim Crow era, she graduated from Southern University, then moved to Los Angeles where she taught elementary school. She wrote her first book in 1969 after realizing a need for her black students to see their reflection in literature. With her husband, Earl Walter, she was active in the Los Angeles chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality. She received a master's degree in education from Antioch College, has been inducted into the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame, and has recorded an oral history for the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Her travels have taken her to more than twenty countries. Now in her late nineties, she lives in Southern California and continues to work for racial justice and reconciliation"--
