Synopsis:Cheating the Stillness: The World of Julia Peterkin chronicles the controversial life of author Julia Peterkin, Pulitzer Prize winner for her sensitive portrayal of rural African Americans of the 1920's.

Du Bois for her "eye and ear to see beauty and hear truth," this white plantation mistress shattered stereotypes of race and gender before she inexplicably stopped writing at the height of her career.
