Delores’s Dream

A Biography of Our Mother

By Ron Walker and Rita Hunter with Pamela Tuck

Delores Gwendolyn Walker dreamed of becoming a teacher who her students would never forget. She desired to pass on her love of reading and poetry to children and youth in the same exemplary manner it was taught to her. Delores was a drum major for education, but growing up during an era of segregation, the Great Depression, and Jim Crow policies, forced her to march to the beat of her own drum.

Delores’s Dream is a true testament to the power of resilience. She believed that education was the key to obtaining her future goals and aspirations. Delores knew the difference between being educated and being schooled. Being schooled limits students to accept mediocrity and become non-critical thinkers. Being educated produces critical thinkers who see endless possibilities in obtaining their goals.

Delores's Dream is a book that should be read across generations from upper elementary to adulthood. It serves as an inspiration and definition of what success looks like. It shows young readers that personal goals and aspirations may be delayed by things out of their control, but with determination and perseverance, they don't have to be denied.

Cost: $12.99
