About this title


This is a new edition of Dr. Hattie Bessent’s groundbreaking work, originally published in 2005 by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The text provides first-person accounts of the lives and motivations of eleven African American nurses of outstanding achievement. Their stories present the authors’ philosophies of leadership and the strategies they used to succeed, against the odds, in what had been a predominantly white profession. The stories are compelling and provide a wealth of knowledge and abundant inspiration for any young nurse of color pursuing professional career in nursing.
