The award-winning correspondent for the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour gives a moment-by-moment account of her walk into history when, as a 19-year-old, she challenged Southern law--and Southern violence--to become the first black woman to attend the University of Georgia. A powrful act of witness to the brutal realities of segregation.

"In My Place is Charlayne Hunter-Gault's richly readable reminiscence of growing up black and middle class in the segregated South, and acquiring in that warm and caring environment the cold courage required to desegregate the University of Georgia."--Derrick Bell "Charlayne Hunter-Gault's moving, warm, frank autobiography is more than a personal chronicle. It is the biography of her generation for it epitomizes the experience of many courageous Black students who led the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. It is essential reading for those who want to acquire a better understanding of the impact that the sixties generation had on America."--Joyce A. Ladner, Harvard University
