A wonderful story of a family of love, and purpose. Reading by the author made it so much more enjoyable.

The building of her career and the brilliance of her mind were a reaffirming of the imprortance of the Affirmative Action laws that helped to expedite the righting of racial wrongdoing over the years.

Her self assurance is a testament to the power of a loving home life in enabling a person to become their best self. This was a very inspirational read.
