Young Reader Edition

Raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, at the height of Jim Crow,

Dovey Johnson Roundtree felt the sting of inequality at an early age and

made a point to speak up for justice. She was one of the first Black

women to break the racial and gender barriers in the US Army; a fierce

attorney in the segregated courtrooms of Washington, DC; and a minister

in the AME church, where women had never before been ordained as clergy.

In 1955, Roundtree won a landmark bus desegregation case that

eventually helped end “separate but equal” and dismantle Jim Crow laws

across the South.

Developed with the full support of the Dovey

Johnson Roundtree Educational Trust and adapted from her memoir, this

book brings her inspiring, important story and voice to life.
