On Tuesday November 4, 2008, President-elect Barack Obama reflected on the life of Anne Nixon Cooper: “she’s seen throughout her century in America—the heartache and the hope; the struggle and the progress; the times we were told we can’t; and the people who pressed on with that American creed: Yes, we can.”?
Empowered and energized by this history-making presidential campaign, Mrs. Cooper will tell her story in her own voice. A Century and Some Change is the portrait of an American who lived a rewarding and culturally rich life despite racial discrimination and economic struggles.
Beloved by her extended family and in her community of Atlanta, where she is celebrated by both the famous and the nameless, Mrs. Cooper will share what she has learned throughout her 107 years of life.
Along with Mrs. Cooper’s story, A Century and Some Change will include photographs and the perspectives of those who know her. Like President Obama said, Mrs. Cooper’s life story reveals the character of everyday Americans and of society as a whole.
