A compelling autobiographical testament of Dorothy Day and her remarkable journey in social activism and her lifelong struggle to help bring about a fair society. Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1897, Dorothy Day grew up in a solid, patriotic, and middle class family. She would go on to work on several socialist newspapers, picket for womens suffrage, and found the Catholic Worker movement with street philosopher Peter Maurin. By any measure, Dorothy Day lived a fascinating life. She was a journalist, single mother, convert, activist and passionate Catholic. Dorothy Day lived among the poor as one of them, challenging both the state and the church to build a better world for all people. Immersed in a life that combined prayer and action, she was put in jail many times for protesting against war, injustice and poverty. In Dorothy Day, Patrick Jordan, who knew her personally, communicates some of Dorothys captivating life. 196236 Patrick Jordan;, Patrick Jordan
