On a January morning in 1961, nineteen-year-old Charlayne Hunter walked calmly into history as she passed through a gauntlet of jeering whites to become the first black woman to attend the University of Georgia. With enormous candor and a courage that is all the more extraordinary for insisting on its ordinariness, the award-winning journalist and correspondent for the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour recounts her transformation from a girl who grew up wanting to be Brenda Starr to a young woman who with quiet confidence crossed America's racial divide. In My Place is a powerful act of witness to the brutal realities of segregation and an homage to the black culture that prepared Charlayne Hunter-Gault to challenge hatred and transcend it.
