Barefootin' : lessons from the road to freedom by Unita Blackwell( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In 1933, Unita Blackwell was born in Lula, Mississippi, a tiny town in the Delta where living was as hard as it gets, the stuff of the blues music that originated there. Like the other black people in Lula, Unita grew up in a sharecropping family, riding on her mother?s cotton sack before she was old enough to pick cotton herself. Having left school at age twelve in order to make a living, Unita was trapped in menial jobs, and a bright future seemed beyond her reach. But Unita was forever changed in the summer of 1964 when civil rights workers came to her town of Mayersville, Mississippi. Electrified by the movement, Unita transformed her life from one of despair to one of hope, and in Barefootin? she details her inspirational rise from poverty to power, from silence to outspokenness, from oppression to freedom."--The publisher
