Book review

What The World is Saying!
Readers will be touched not only by her story but by her daughter's dedication in bringing it to light. How fortunate we are today to be able to read it, that it needn't be hidden away for an occasional scholar to happen upon, but available to all. A vote of thanks to Dorothy for helping to create our new, more open and inclusive American future.
    - HETTIE JONES  Author, How I Became Hettie Jones, New School Professor
 What life teaches us is that we have the ability to continue to grow. Spring is a season but also a possibility as there is renewal. I Didn't Know What I Didn't Know shows us renewal at its finest, a wonderful insight.
    - NIKKI GIOVANNI  Activist, Author, Racism 101, Distinguished Professor of English, Virginia Tech
   Dorothy's work models the healing our nation still has to do to fully embrace both our diversity AND the common humanity of us all. 
 - VALERIE BATTS   Executive Director, VISIONS Inc.
 If Blacks and Whites are going to work together to help our nation live out its democratic ideals they will need to move beyond the misunderstandings and denials about our racial differences and similarities. Dorothy Hampton Marcus invites us into the intimacy of her white family circle to allow us to observe what its like to grow up as a Southern girl and how she became one of the unsung heroines of the movement toward becoming a "'somewhat' more perfect union." For years I have said of her "she is a genuine, good white woman." In this book we get to see what helped to make her such a remarkable "human rights activist."
  - DR. JAMES A. FORBES  The Harry Emerson Fosdick Distinguished Professor , Union Theological Seminary and Senior Pastor Emeritus of Riverside Church, New York, NY
    An interesting account, told by mother and daughter, of the kind of life which often goes unexamined, but which has a place in history."
    - SUSAN STRAIGHT Author, Professor of Creative Writing, University of California Riverside, National Book Award Finalist
