Summary
Myrtilla Miner, the daughter of poor white farmers in Madison County, New York, was fueled by an unyielding feminist conviction. On December 3, 1851, the fiery educator and abolitionist opened the School for Colored Girls-- the only school in Washington, DC, dedicated to training African American students to be teachers. Milner fended off numerous attacks, including stonings, arson, and physical threats. The school would gradually gain national fame and stimulate a nationwide debate on the education of black people. -- adapted from back cover of jacket
