“An educator long involved in civil rights, Paula Lawrence Wehmiller mines the disturbing issue of intolerance – both from without and within… It is a story of revelation and acceptance, an age-old tale about learning to love oneself before learning to love others. ‘So often,’ Wehmiller writes, ‘the very thing that was a struggle for each of us – the thing that was injurious, the part of the story where we felt disconnected from ourselves, not understood, not accepted by others – is the thing we turn into the strength of our life’s work.”
