Sara Lawrence Lightfoot's moving tribute to the life of her mother should be required reading in schools across this country!This work allows the reader to view a side of African American life rarely revealed still at this point in our nation's development. Margaret Morgan Lawrence faced injustice and adversity with eloquence and grace and completed medical studies at one of the top schools in this country. Her stark brilliance remains unparralled. Lawrence Lightfoot also treats the reader to the loving realtionship which existed between her mother and father.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book displays great perseverance, strength, and courage of one young African American women's fight against institutional racism. Ever since her little brother passed away, she wanted to become a doctor. She left her comfortable southern home and ventured into New York, where she became the second women doctor to graduate from Columbia.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
