Ms. Walker-Slocum tells the story of how one Black woman survived a fire in early childhood managing to stay alive and rise to the top of her profession despite insurmountable physical odds. Residing in a community which showed obvious preference for light-skinned Negroes; living in a household where she was severely disciplined for the slightest infraction despite her illness; growing up with a gifted brother whose talent lay in the same field as hers, the author tells of her personal experiences while teaching, concertizing and meeting the one, true love of her life - a handsome blonde Adonis (who was a graduate of her own undergraduate college) while they were both teaching at Tougaloo College in Mississippi in 1950 before the murders of Emmet Till, Medgars Evans, the three Civil Rights workers and the whole civil rights movement.
