Unmasking: A Woman's Journey book by Gloria Ewing Lockhart

Gloria Ewing Lockhart intimately chronicles the road to forgiveness in her memoir, Unmasking: A Woman’s Journey. Her widespread roots began in the segregated South and are revealed as she examines how to triumphantly free herself of confining roles and overcome societal pigeonholes. Her upbringing was scarred by divorce, abandonment, adoption, molestation, and bullying. Through a very personal journey of memory and miles, she sheds her negative mantras along with a multitude of obstacles threatening her life and livelihood.

Unmasking: A Woman’s Journey candidly takes the reader from rural beginnings to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, from dark secrets to the spotlight of community service, to accolades and accomplishments never imaged by Lockhart or her family. Gloria shares a way to break one’s personal chains and rise to their full potential. Her faith, authenticity, and candor propel her to tell her story for the benefit of us all.

Unmasking: A Woman’s Journey is a blueprint for people seeking to transform their lives and become the champions of their own story.

“I highly endorse Unmasking: A Woman’s Journey.  It is an insightful account of Gloria

growing up in an age of racial discrimination and misunderstanding.  I applaud her ability
to persevere during some of the most tumultuous times in this country’s history. 
Her passion for track allowed her to rise above these difficult times. She was able to
take her passion and pioneer track and field for women, opening the door for women to
compete equitably to men.”

Amazon Review

"In her debut memoir, an African-American woman tells the story of how she became an advocate for social change.
The book begins with a moving prologue in which Lockhart tells of counseling high-risk teenage girls, setting the stage for the author’s story of discrimination, self-hatred, personal growth and self-acceptance. Lockhart was born in Eudora, Ark., and at age 5, after her parents’ divorce, she moved to Mt. Pleasant, Tenn. Her mother, Thelma, who dreamed of becoming a New York model, sent the author to Lansing, Mich., to live with her aunt and uncle, with the understanding she could return when her mother had a career and steady income."
