Description: In this loving remembrance of her mother, Carrie Allen McCray portrays the life of a woman who worked to beat down the barriers to equality. Born eleven years after the end of the Civil War, the daughter of a white Confederate general and his black servant, Mary Rice Hayes Allen was publicly recognized by her father.

After she graduated from college she embarked on a career as a civil rights activist. From befriending her hostile white neighbors to starting local chapters of the NAACP, from desegregating movie theaters to writing personal letters to President Harding, Mary was determined to do what she could to improve the lives of African Americans. But the greatest challenge she faced was learning to accept her own father. Carrie Allen McCray's memories of her remarkable mother reward us with an intimate portrait of a woman who overcame a legacy of scandal to pass on a legacy of personal courage, conviction, love, and joy.
