Throughout her long life, Mary Church Terrell never let any obstacle block her path. At age 86 she led a successful battle to integrate the restaurants of Washington, D.C. This was one more link in a lifelong chain of fights and firsts for this outspoken African-American woman. She was one of the first black women in the United States to earn a college degree, the first to be appointed to a school board, the first president of the National Association of Colored Women (NACW), and a founder of the NAACP. The McKissacks show how her untiring efforts helped set a new course for blacks and women in the United States.
