Meet the Authors
Standing Up Against Hate - When Chariitty Adams and other African American women enlisted in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) in World War II, they were among the bravest and most adventurous women in 1940s America. They interrupted careers and left families, friends, and loved ones to venture
into unknown and sometimes dangerous territory. They survived racial prejudice and discrimination with dignity, succeeded in jobs that women had
never worked before, and made crucial contributions to the military war effort. Both inspiring and heart-wrenching, Standing Up Against Hate tells these women’s powerful stories and offers a much-needed perspective on World War II America.
