Summary
Raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, in the heart of Jim Crow, Dovey Johnson Roundtree felt the sting of inequality at an early age and made a point to speak up for justice. She was one of the first Black women to break the racial and gender barriers in the US Army when women were barely allowed to serve; a fierce attorney in the segregated courtrooms of Washington, DC; and a minister in Black churches, where women had never before had the chance to speak. In 1955, Roundtree won a landmark bus desegregation case that eventually helped end “separate but equal” and destroy insidious Jim Crow laws across the South. There are many key figures of the civil rights movement whose names don’t often appear in history books, those who fought hard for equality behind the scenes. Developed with the full support of the Dovey Johnson Roundtree Educational Trust and adapted by Jabari Asim from her memoir, this book brings her inspiring, important story and voice to life
