June 14, 2006 - Dan Rather interviews Essie Mae Washington-Williams, the late Sen. Strom Thurmond's biracial daughter
Dear senator : a memoir by the daughter of Strom Thurmond by Essie Mae Washington-Williams( Book )

The illegitimate daughter of the late Senator Strom Thurmond breaks her lifelong silence. Her father, the longtime senator from South Carolina, was once the nation's leading voice for racial segregation; he mounted a filibuster against the Civil Rights Act of 1957 -- in the name of saving the South from "mongrelization." Her mother was Carrie Butler, a black teenager who worked as a maid on the Thurmond family's South Carolina plantation. The memoir reveals a brave young woman who struggled with the discrepancy between the father she knew -- financially generous, supportive of her education, even affectionate -- and the old Southern politician who refused to acknowledge their relationship in public
