Summary "Feed My Sheep: The Life of Alberta Henry is a slender book that illuminates the life of an important Utah civil rights activist. The combination of oral history and more traditional biographical-style narrative offers a complex depiction of a strong Black woman coming of age during WWII and then moving to Utah to improve her health and find her way in the world"-- Provided by publisher.
