After being raped by her employer’s husband at the age of eleven, Ida Mae Holland (also known as ‘Cat’), became a rebel, getting expelled from high school, turning to prostitution, serving jail time for shoplifting and assault. But when she stumbled across the civil rights movement, the troublemaker found herself developing into a leader — on the front lines of marches and protects, facing police dogs and water hoses, being beaten and jailed again and again, all in a struggle for freedom. The dream soon turned into a nightmare, however, as Cat’s family suffered the cruellest retribution at the hands of white bigots that she could ever have imagined.
