'Believe in the Magic': Daughter publishes book about mother's life

Kansas City, MO, March 7, 2013. The book Believe in the Magic: Let the Tenacity of Mattie Fisher Inspire You by author Dee Louis-Scott is about the life of Mattie Fisher, the twelve year old that wouldn’t take no for an answer during the time when there was no system for human and legal rights for the black female. It is a groundbreaking book that shows young woman what it really means to stand up for your rights and push forward. Mattie Fisher stood her ground. She was confident and fierce, always pushing forward, striving to do things she wanted to do. Mattie turned a deaf ear to the oppressive system and those who thought they could dictate her life.
In today’s world, women of all races take for granted their rights in issues such as the right to body integrity; to vote; to hold public office; to work with fair wages or equal pay; to own property; to enter into legal contracts; and to have marital, parental and religious rights. But in Mattie Fisher’s lifetime none of these rights existed. Through marriages, divorces, betrayals and loss, Mattie Fisher always found a way to rise and stand. She stood not bitter, angry or vengeful but loving and forgiving. Believe in the Magic will inspire readers to live a purpose filled life. No situation is impossible to overcome and to never settle for less than what you were created for. One reader states, “I was so moved by the encouragement to face your own fears and follow your dreams. The lessons on becoming more independent and forgiving others was compelling.” Author, Dee Louis-Scott is available for interviews.
