From Liberty to Magnolia: In Search of the American Dream vividly
recounts the journey of an African American woman from rural, segregated Mississippi
through academia, corporate America, and politics. It is the story of how she
triumphed even when, more often than not, the ugly realities of racism and
sexism tried to deter her. 

This book tells the broader
story, too, of how her life epitomizes what the Civil Rights Act and Equal
Rights Amendment have meant and have not meant for millions of blacks and millions
of women as she has lived through their maturation during the last 50 years. 

What better time than now to
examine how these two seminal and defining events played out in the life of an
ordinary African American woman who believed in all of America’s promises? What
better moment than today to look deeply at the life of a woman who prepared
herself and worked tirelessly to achieve her goals only to realize that many lay
beyond her reach and that of most women and most blacks. 

From Liberty to Magnolia shows
readers, especially aspiring women and minorities—with whom her story will have
special resonance—how to navigate and ultimately embrace the challenges at
every major crossroads and be triumphant. 

A Discussion Guide is included for
use by book clubs, classes, and group forums.
