Publisher Description

Kelley captures Mary McLeod Bethune’s trials and triumphs from an impoverished childhood in the cotton fields of South Carolina to her ascendancy as black America’s most influential leader.

Bethune’s unyielding faith in God propels her forward on a lifelong mission of justice and equality. With a dollar and fifty cents, she starts a school for black girls that grows into a reputable university. She elevates the status of black women as founder and president of the National Council of Negro Women and builds opportunities for youth as head of the Division of Negro Affairs in Franklin Roosevelt’s National Youth Administration.
