In this compelling book about their Virginia family, the authors trace their roots, recount tales and present photos of their loving parents, Richard and Florence Waller, and other relatives. Read inspirational stories from 1900 when their grandfather, M. C. Waller started a jewelry business and their grandmother Dungee became a teacher. Despite the systemic racism in the Capital of the Confederacy, these ancestors were sustained by faith and fortitude. Our Shining Legacy also profiles the Waller siblings–Richard, Jewel, Joyce, Lillian, Betty and Barbara—coming of age in segregated Richmond. They experienced enormous societal change due to civil rights legislation and achieved much success as they embraced the entrepreneurial and educational legacies bequeathed them.
