This biography for 8 to 13 year old children describes Mildred L. Johnson Edward's life as a student - one of the few black children at the Ethical Culture Schools for many years, her unsuccessful search for a student-teaching position in New York City's private schools, and her decision at the age of 20 to found a private school where she could give black children an alternative to the kind of public education they were being offered.
