Their words capture the unguarded thoughts and reactions of two highly intelligent women - one white, one black: one a northerner, one a southerner - both dedicated to the cause of human rights. In the process, the letters paint compelling self-portraits."--Jacket."@en ;

Murray (1910-1985), raised in North Carolina, became a labor lawyer, a teacher, and a lifelong political and social activist.
