Editorial Reviews

Review

"A lovingly composed tribute...[that] allows readers to hear Raye's own words though quotes and memories...Will especially appeal to Black women interested in STEM fields as well as those interested in firsthand perspectives of civil rights."

-- "Library Journal"

"A must-read for anyone seeking inspiration to overcome social barriers and to shatter glass ceilings."

-- "Carolyn Porter, author of Marcel's Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man's Fate"

"A reminder that even in the toughest of environments, if you give someone a chance, they will excel beyond expectations. It is the lesson, the story, and the life of Raye Montague."

-- "Artemesia Stanberry, coauthor of Stealth Reconstruction "

"Robin Eller...brings enthusiasm and vocal integrity to the task of showing listeners just who this 'little girl from Little Rock' really was...There is a novelistic feel to the narrative that makes Raye seem real and her accomplishments in overcoming social barriers just as important as her computer programming successes. Kevin Kenerly reads a small section by David Montague, Raye's son."

-- "AudioFile"

"The powerful and inspiring story of a woman who refused to be stopped by the dual challenges of racism and sexism in the largely male, largely White world of the early days of computer science."

-- "Pamela D. Toler, author of Women Warriors "

"What an amazing story about an amazing woman!...Montague's life demonstrates what a determined woman can accomplish even when the deck is doubly stacked against her."

-- "Theresa Kaminski, historian and author of Dr. Mary Walker's Civil War" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
