this book had so much potential, but contained a lot of filler material. the sections regarding the little rock nine and her involvement with the NAACP were interesting. if Daisy Bates was in actuality like the author presents her, she may have been a big player in the civil rights movements, but she seemed to be doing it for her own benefit and celebrity once the central high actions ended. she comes across as extremely self-centered. L.C. comes across as a hero for having to put up with her.
