Driving Miss Daisy

by:Uhry, Alfred

In 1948, Miss Daisy Werthan, an elderly, cranky ex-school teacher from Atlanta, crashes her new Packard through a retaining wall into her neighbor's yard. Her concerned son Boolie reasons she no longer is able to drive herself, and over her strenuous objections hires the gentle, tactful, and wily black widower Hoke Colburn to be her chauffeur. As a Jew, Miss Daisy is also the victim of prejudice, and she gradually overcomes her subconscious bigotry to see Hoke as a true friend. Beginning in frostiness, their slow changing relationship mirrors the changing racial climate in the south through the burgeoning of civil rights movement.
