Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0991228529, Paperback)

In her new memoir, Dr. Hattie N. Washington reveals how a country girl, from the backwoods of Meherrin, Virginia, succeeded through life with optimism, drive and a belief in God to become an honor student, a teacher, a parent to two accomplished daughters, and a foster parent to over one hundred foster boys over a twenty-year period. She writes about family, relationships, and the complexities of growing up during the segregation and desegregation era, where the strike at R.R. Moton High School, in Farmville, Virginia in 1951, led to the historic landmark case, Brown v. Board of Education. Dr. Hattie N. Washington's Driven To Succeed: An Inspirational Memoir of Lessons Learned Through Faith, Family and Favor shares the long journey she had starting a non-profit foster boys group home that she affectionately named Aunt Hattie's Place. Complete with personal photographs of her life, her riveting story provides inspiration for generations to come.
