Description

About the Book:
Seventy-eight years young, self-proclaimed Southern Jewish American Princess and honored civil rights activist, Jocie, has a lot to say. And she details it all in this charming, often hilarious memoir that reveals a woman living a feminist’s life decades before anyone else. Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination changed her life and sparked her role as an accidental activist. From Memphis to the State House to the White House, this book charts her journey through sacrifice, crazy situations, and a myriad of funny incidents.

About the Author:
Jocelyn Dan Wurzburg is a fifth-generation Memphian. She founded the local Panel of American Women in 1988 to address prejudice and celebrate differences. She started the Concerned Women of Memphis and Shelby County, credited with averting a second sanitation workers' strike a year after Dr. King's death. Jocelyn jumped into civil rights, women's rights, and social justice activities serving on the Social Action Commission of Reform Judaism. President Gerald Ford appointed her to the International Women's Year Commission, and she served Governor Winfield Dunn on the Tennessee Human Rights Commission, where she wrote Tennessee's first anti-discrimination law in employment, public accommodations, and housing. At age 35, Jocie went to law school hoping to be more effective in her "causes." After four divorce trials, she pursued mediation as a saner process, becoming Memphis' first professional mediator. She founded the Mediation Association of Tennessee despite resistance to mediation by the bench and bar. She helped start the Association for Women Attorneys and chaired the Family Law and the ADR sections of the Memphis Bar Association. Devoted to jazz, she founded the Jazz Society of Memphis, feeling music could bring people together.
