Peggy Wallace Kennedy & Donna Wilhelm in conversation with Krys Boyd of KERA
Peggy Wallace Kennedy, seen as the "symbol of racial reconciliation" (Washington Post), is the daughter of one of America's most virulent segregationists, former governor of Alabama and presidential candidate George Wallace, who ultimately renounced his views at the end of his life. Wallace Kennedy's powerful memoir The Broken Road is both timely and timeless and speaks to change, atonement, activism, and racial healing. A Life of My Own follows Donna Wilhelm's path from a lonely child in an immigrant boarding house to corporate wife and mother, to middle-aged divorcee, and finally her reinvention into a philanthropist, arts advocate, and humanitarian. This evocative memoir reveals her unique upbringing, diverse work history, family challenges and journey of personal growth with unbridled honesty and will inspire others to take ownership of their stories.
