Coming of age in Mississippi : the classic autobiography of a young black girl in the rural South by Anne Moody( )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born to a poor couple who were tenant farmers on a plantation in Mississippi, Anne Moody lived through some of the most dangerous days of the pre-civil rights era in the South. The week before she began high school came the news of Emmet Till's lynching. Before then, she had "known the fear of hunger, hell, and the Devil. But now there was ... the fear of being killed just because I was black." In that, moment was born the passion for freedom and justice that would change her life. An all-A student whose dream of going to college is realized when she wins a basketball scholarship, she finally dares to join the NAACP in her junior year. Through the NAACP and later through CORE and SNCC she has first-hand experience of the demonstrations and sit-ins that were the mainstay of the civil rights movement, and the arrests and jailings, the shotguns, fire hoses, police dogs, billy clubs and deadly force that were used to destroy it. A deeply personal story but also a portrait of a turning point in our nation's destiny, this autobiography lets us see history in the making, through the eyes of one of the foot soldiers in the civil rights movement

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this lecture recorded at Millsaps College on February 21, 1985, Moody bridges the gap between 1965 and 1984, from the publication of her memoir Coming of age in Mississippi to the [then] present day. She discusses her decision to leave Mississippi in 1965 for Washington, D.C. then New York City, her life as an expatriate in France and Germany, becoming a mother, and the death of her own mother (TooSweet) which brought her back to the United States. She reads a list of her longtime works in progress, recalls hearing the news of the death of three civil rights workers in Neshoba County, Miss. mere weeks after meeting them in person, and predicts a "limited nuclear war" after the re-election of Ronald Reagan. Her lecture is followed by a lenghty Q & A with Millsaps students
