An American Story by Debra J. Dickerson

A profoundly courageous and insightful memoir,An American Storydocuments the events that have shaped journalist Debra Dickersons conscience. The daughter of former sharecroppers, Dickerson never imagined she would emerge from her squalid St. Louis neighborhood to become an acclaimed journalist with a Harvard Law degree. A constant reader and a straight-A student, nevertheless Dickersons lack of confidence kept her from accepting the many colleges offers she received. Instead she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, quickly rising through the ranks. In spite of her success, she recognized within herself deep-seated conflict at being a working class black woman living in a white mans world. Her path to self-acceptance is at the heart of this refreshing narrative.
