About the Book

Read and experience the story and life of Vernie Pharr King, a woman whose life has been filled with love, religion, education, and hard work. Her life has been filled with many lessons and experiences. Raised during the height of Jim Crow Laws and segregation, a time when inequality was at its peak, Vernie kept her faith in God and was able to overcome the adversity and hardships that entered her life and has done so for over 90 years. As a child, she attended the Lutheran parochial school, taught Sunday school classes, and later became a teacher at the same parochial school she attended. She graduated from Immanuel Lutheran Junior College in Greensboro, North Carolina. As a young recent graduate and newly trained Lutheran teacher, she traveled to Selma, Alabama where she was able to teach and live at the home of Dr. Rosa Young. In this book, you will explore the childhood and adulthood experiences of Vernie and read more about her life’s journey, as you navigate through her many encounters.
