Summary
"Looking at Carolynn Brooks, people always saw someone who had her act together: a lovely wife, a caring mother, and an ambitious talent rising in the ranks of corporate America. As it turned out, she would one day be vice president of a Fortune 500 company, even when that career path was almost unheard of for a black woman without a degree. What people didn't see was Carolynn scrambling to take off her glasses before her husband hit her. They didn't see the harassment at work or the racist notes left in her mailbox. They didn't see her standing in the doorway of her children's room, watching them sleep and wondering if she could go on like this for even one more day. She lived a fast-paced life, often just trying to make it through. Then, after her mother died, Carolynn was sifting through her mother's belongings and found three birth certificates with three different names for the same baby-her. She embarked on a journey to discover the truth of her complicated family history, make peace with the past, and inspire others to persevere, like her, in the face of daunting obstacles. In You Will Know My Name, Carolynn takes readers by the hand and shows them what it means to PUSH-persevere until something happens-believing there is purpose in it all. She shares how time and again, with bold determination and ever-present faith, she's done what people said she couldn't do."--
