Daisy: Between a Rock and a Hard Place My review

Before the reading of this book I have never heard of Daisy Gatson Bates simply because I am not American. But during the read I search the net to learn more about this gutsy woman. A warrior that was not afraid to stand up for what is right. Her pursuit for equality center stage in her mind, thoughts and action. But what the author accomplish best in this book were to introduce us to the woman behind the tuff facade. Her doubts, fears, struggles in her daily life and how she had to adapt to a unfriendly world out to hurt her, just because of the color of her skin.
Never looking pass the strong willed fiery woman who was not afraid to stand and fight. Or the beautiful woman, petite in posture with a soft heart and a love for her people.
You are drawn into the historical account leading up before her birth that shaped this woman to what she had become. It shaped her world on so many levels but yet she did not use it as a excuse to lay down but to stand up and do the right thing.
With a friend, confidant and husband by her side. L.C Bates who was a remarkable man in his own right. Who guided her with a soft touch and wisdom filled words. Giving her the courage to accomplish the task at hand.
I learned many things during this read, in some things I could feel with her, sensing her struggles. The way the author told it, it was heart warming. Shining the light on a subject that still gives problems all over the world.
A book I can recommend for teachers and school children and for those who love to learn more about the history of this Nation, the United States of America.
Thought provoking and a eye opener to many who is hiding behind all the excuses of not doing the right thing.
This fiery woman from the little town of Huttig was born to invoke in each of us the character of determination and will. To accomplish what you have set your mind on and not be afraid.
Thank you Janis F. Kearney for introducing me to this remarkable woman.
