The Third Door: The Autobiography of an American Negro Woman
But when her own brown daughter was subjected to racial discrimination she wrote "The Third Door" in 1955 to tell America about the plight of her people. With prose that is both moving and powerful, Tarry relates her life against the background of a changing American society. She still awaits the third door, designated neither "white" nor "colored," through which all American will someday walk.
