Chattanooga On The Map Finds A Publisher!
Posted: 06/10/2007

Chattanooga On The Map Finds A Publisher! In December, 2007, Rita L. Hubbard's first nonfiction historical, Chattanooga On The Map, will make its debut.

Designed to be the first of a two-volume historical, Chattanooga On The Map will chronicle the early presence of African Americans in the Chattanooga/Hamilton County area. It will also outline the contributions that African Americans in Chattanooga have made to their own city, and to the United States as a whole.

One example is the story of ex-slave Mary Walker, who became the nation's oldest student after she learned to read at the ripe old age of 116.

They both had good, solid plans...until they met each other.
