An African American centenarian who saw W. E. B. Du Bois speak in 1924 and attended President Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009 shares wisdom from a life well lived during a crucial period in American history


Ella Mae Cheeks Johnson was an inspirational, dynamic, and one-of-a-kind woman, whose ordinary life was nothing less than extraordinary throughout the course of her 106 years. A graduate of Case Western Reserve University, Ella Mae was the child of former slaves and experienced the best and worst of the past century in America--from the Jim Crow era and the Great Depression to the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009, which she memorably attended. Through it all, she endured--and thrived--by adhering to the example of the Good Samaritan: the belief that compassion is the key to the good life and offering to help without expecting payback brings its own rewards. In It Is Well with My Soul , Ella Mae Cheeks Johnson shares her insights on living a long and enjoyable life and her hopes for the future.
