This chapter details the friendship and correspondence between Pauli Murray and Lina Ware, which started when the country was at war in 1942 under President Roosevelt. It notes that their friendship began as something of a teacher–student relationship until they became well acquainted. The chapter points out that Murray drew Ware into the student protest movement she had helped to organize, seeking to end segregation in Washington, D.C., while Ware served on the National Defense Advisory Commission, wrote The Consumer Goes to War, worked in her garden, and taught history to soldiers-in-the-making. It also notes that Murray, whose focus was on the struggle for human rights, was engaged in active protest and in the study of law, while Ware, like most professional women of her generation, was deeply involved in the work of several volunteer associations; The American Association of University Women was her longest-running volunteer base.
