9781943789344: Always the First: The Story of Annie Mae Walker: Survival in an Uncivil World

From the wretched conditions of Florida's turpentine camps to Eleanor Roosevelt's elegant home, from a background of poverty and prejudice to dinners with the rich and famous, the life of Dr. Annie Mae Walker chronicles both abuse and celebration of growing up black in Daytona Beach and beyond.  This book tells the story of struggles of civil rights abuse and triumph in the United States from the viewpoint of a woman who helped change its history.   It is like a window into a time of great change in  the U.S. and of  many people who witnessed and helped or hindered its progress.

"Lynn Hawkins' anthology of the statements and writings of Dr. Annie Mae Walker of Daytona Beach and a graduate of Bethune-Cookman College, provides a full portrait of an individual committed to racial dignity and political change. Through its mixture of interviews, literary writings, and essays, ranging from thoughtfully reasoned political declaration to lively storytelling, the collection vividly reveals the strong ow of humanity in a woman who felt deeply both pain and joy in her efforts to effect social justice." Steve Jones, Professor of Humanities at Bethune-Cookman University. "If you are an educator who believes in inspiring students to perform at their best, you must read the story of Dr. Annie Mae Walker, who lived to inspire students and everyone around her!"
