Born to rebel : an autobiography

"Born the son of a sharecropper in 1894 near Ninety Six, South Carolina, Benjamin E. Mays went on to serve as president of Morehouse College for twenty-seven years and as the first African American president of the Atlanta School Board. His earliest memory, of a lynching party storming through his country, taunting but not killing his father, became for Mays an enduring image of black-white relations in the South. Born to rebel is the moving chronicle of his life, a story that interlaces achievement with the rebuke he continually confronted."--P. 4 of cover
