Join us as Nita Wiggins presents her book, Civil Rights Baby: My Story of Race, Sports, and Breaking Barriers in American Journalism
Civil Rights Baby is about a determined girl’s pursuit of the career she wants, believing the laws of the land, especially the Civil Rights Act of 1964, protect her. But, in reaching her dream destination in Dallas, she finds that the decades of competing in a male-dominated field have brutalized her on many levels. Fighting for acceptance and proving qualifications come to a dramatic head one day–leading her to move to France.
