Abstract:

Here are the never-before told stories of Taylor's background, childhood, family history, and political experience as a member of the Black Studies program at the University of Colorado (which she helped to found) in the late 1960s. It is from these experiences that she takes her stories, and using the storytelling talents of her family, brings to life the characters that came alive in her own head when she was a child. As readers we benefit from the product of Taylor's life - her writing; now Presenting Mildred D. Taylor allows us to explore the process as well.
