Summary
"Booker proposes the republication of Alice Allison Dunnigan's original, unedited autobiography A Black Woman's Experience: From School House to White House (unavailable except as a collector's item). Alice Dunnigan (1906-1983) was the first African American woman to break the color and gender barriers of national journalism. During her time as a journalist, she reported for the Louisville Defender and Chicago Defender, and was a member of the Negro Associated Press. Dunnigan has been inducted into the Kentucky Hall of Fame for Journalism (1982) and for Human Rights (2010), and in 2013 was inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists Hall of Fame. The original autobiography was self-published and quite long, thus failing to gain the wide readership it might have; Booker aims to make Dunnigan's story available once more and highly readable for a general audience. She has edited from its original 673 pages into a flowing, compelling narrative of approximately 234 pages (71,000 words)"--
