The third door; the autobiography of an American Negro woman

New York: David McKay Company, 1955. Hardcover. viii, 304p., very good first edition in cloth boards and edgeworn, unclipped dj.

Tarry, an African American from Alabama, had a long and distinguished career in Catholic social services. Her autobiography lays out her hope for a nonracial America.
