Descripción

"In an unwavering voice Nellie offers a humanistic approach to a society wrought with injustice. She unleashes memories of both her fight for equal pay for women in the late 1930s, and her ground-vreaking election as the first black woman appointed to office in Minneapolis. A feisty individual, she describes her instrumental role in organizing statewide hotel and restaurant union.In this engaging oral history, Nellie's tough, candid perspective resonates as she recounts nearly a century of politics shaped by her insatiable pursuit to establish equality for all." This book has 234 pages. The book is a SIGNED copy from the author, David Brauer. N° de ref. de la librería 039183

Sinopsis:

"Next time you feel a whiny mood coming on-politics is corrupt, the schools suck, everything's going to hell in a handbasket and I don't feel so hot, either-skip the Prozac and go instead for a dose of Nellie Stone Johnson. Ninety-five years old and getting sharper every day, Nellie doesn't so much restore your faith in humanity as she demands it. . . . This African-American/Ojibway/German/French hotel worker/seamstress/labor-movement matriarch, this farm kid from Pine County who taught Hubert H. Humphrey about civil rights, this hell-raiser since the Roosevelt administration can tell you a couple of things about what makes a difference. You may not get a chance to see her live . . . so grab a copy of her autobiography. . . . And then quit whining and do something."-City Pages

"Johnson's charm and wit in recounting little-known aspects of American civil rights activism will hold readers' attention from the first page through the last."-Washington Post Book World

"A fascinating look into the life of a powerful, energetic woman."-Booklist

"Brauer skillfully conveys the story of an inspiring and noble woman . . . who has made every minute of her life count."-Publishers Weekly
