After being raped by a white employer at the age of 11, Holland became a rebel, turning to prostitution and delinquency. But when she stumbled across the civil rights movement, the trouble-maker found herself developing into a leader -- only to encounter the cruelest retribution at the hands of white bigots that she could ever have imagined.
