Between 1910 and the mid-1920s, more than sixty black students from the South bravely traveled north to Ferris Institute, a small, mostly white school in Big Rapids, Michigan. Haste to Rise is a book about the incredible resiliency and breathtaking accomplishments of those students. There is also an in-depth look into the life and work of the Institute's founder, Woodbridge Nathan Ferris, a racial justice pioneer who created educational opportunities for women, international students, and African Americans.
