Dear Senator: A Memoir by the Daughter of Strom Thurmond
Essie Mae Washington-Williams (au); William Stadiem (au). Essie Mae Washington-Williams -- daughter of the late Sen. Strom Thurmond -- breaks her lifelong silence & tells the story of her life. Until age 16, she assumed that the aunt & uncle who raised her were her parents. The revelation of her true parentsí identities was a shock that changed the course of her life. Her father, the longtime Sen. from SC, was once the nationís leading voice for racial segregation. Her mother was Carrie Butler, a black teenager who worked as a maid on the Thurmond familyís plantation. This memoir reveals a brave young woman who struggled with the discrepancy between the father she knew, & the old Southern politician, railing against greater racial equality, who refused to acknowledge their relationship in public.
