Summary
  • Acclaimed biographer James McGrath Morris brings into focus the riveting life of pioneering journalist Ethel Payne, known as The First Lady of the Black Press. For decades, Ethel Lois Payne has been hidden in the shadows of history. Now, Morris skillfully illuminates the life of this ambitious, influential, and groundbreaking woman, from her childhood growing up in South Chicago to her career as a journalist and network news commentator, reporting on some of the most crucial events in modern American history
  • Payne broke new ground as the Washington correspondent for the Chicago Defender; publicly prodded President Dwight D. Eisenhower to support desegregation; and reported on legislative and judicial civil rights battles, enlightening and activating black readers across the nation. In 1972, she became the first female African American radio and television commentator on a national network, working for CBS. Her story mirrors the evolution of our own modern society. Morris brings into focus the riveting life of one of the most significant yet least known figures of the civil rights era
