What an adventure I have had converting from a typical Southern Jewish American Princess into an honored civil rights activist. After Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in my town, I started calling my maid “Mrs.” -- while my husband and children didn’t. The family’s prominence in business gave me the security to change.
From Memphis to the State House to the White House, this book charts my journey through sacrifice, even death, but also crazy situations and funny incidents. I learned “HTSFIAMI.” Read the book to find out what it means. Along this path, I have walked beside some incredible people.
The balance sheet is positive. There was new insight, new friends, and new values, banjo picking, and an old crush -- who loves me still today.
