Lillian Carter: A Compassionate Life

Lillian Carter: A Compassionate Life

English | 2014 | ISBN: 078649719X | EPUB | 236 Pages | 1.9 mb

Written with the cooperation of President Jimmy Carter and his family, this book provides an intimate glimpse inside the life of the woman who-as nurse, mother and social justice activist in segregated southwest Georgia-made a lifelong habit of breaking the rules defining a woman's place in and out of the home and the status of blacks in society. As the only white nurse in her rural community who cared for black families, as a 68-year-old Peace Corps Volunteer in 1960s India, as a fearless supporter of civil rights and as a First Mother unlike any other, Lillian Carter showed how individual courage, conviction and compassion can make a difference. Drawing on interviews with friends and colleagues, members of the Plains, Georgia, black community, Peace Corps Volunteers who trained with her, White House insiders and key players in the civil rights movement, as well as letters, documents and photographs never before made public, this book captures the essence of the woman the press dubbed "Rose Kennedy without the hair dye" and "First Mother of the world."
