About this title:

Synopsis: tell them we are rising

"The inspiring story of how one woman gave back."--Ed Bradley

"This is a heartwarming story about struggle, survival, and achieve ment. If we didn't know people like this in our lives, we would want to invent them. What more could one ask? A good story told with a deft hand."--William H. Gray III President, United Negro College Fund

"An inspiring account of an African American educator determined to make a difference in the lives of indifferent students."--Kirkus Reviews

"Tell Them We Are Rising is a wonderful, inspiring story of service, commitment, generosity, love, and hope. It is written with the humor, wisdom, and grace of a bygone era, yet spiced with the ultramodern savvy and the future-oriented vision of a twenty-year-old. What an extraordinary woman! What an extraordinary life!"--Chaka Fattah U.S. Representative (Pennsylvania)

From the Publisher: In this inspiring memoir, a pioneering African-American educator tells the dramatic story of her greatest achievement--a guarantee to 116 students from Philadelphia's grittiest neighborhoods of a chance to go to college. She relates both the successes and the failures of these teenagers and provides valuable lessons about how individuals and communities can make positive change happen. The inspiring odyssey of a courageous inner city educator who pledged her fortune to kids at risk
