An African American Woman's Spiritual JourneyBook - 2001
The triumphant story of courage and determination, Willis writes movingly of surviving a childhood in an Alabama mining camp in the 1950s to become one of the first black students to attend Cornell University. An early experience of marching with Martin Luther King, Jr. in Birmingham sets her on a path of activism, and as so many others did, Willis faced the dilemma of violence or peace in changing the world. After nearly joining the Black Panthers, Willis instead set off to India and developed a deep relationship with a Tibetan spiritual master who would forever change her life.
