Unstoppable is the inspiring story of Congressman Diane Black’s remarkable life and accomplishments, written by her husband, David L. Black, PhD, who captures the heart and spirit of this dynamic woman in a way only he could. From growing up in public housing to holding public office, Diane Black has lived the classic American Dream. Despite her humble upbringing, she became the first in her family to attain a college degree and went on to a successful career in nursing. In this moving memoir, Dr. Black recounts the unforgettable moment in 1967 when he first laid eyes on Diane, and how eleven years later they finally embarked on a life together.
When Dr. Black moved his family to Tennessee in 1986, he never imagined that his wife would one day be elected to the Tennessee General Assembly and later to the US Congress. Dr. Black’s moving tribute reveals the genuine character behind the nationally known public figure and the truth behind the political falsehoods. Named one of the twenty-five most influential women in Congress, Diane Black is dedicated to serving others and has an unstoppable spirit of determination in all she does.
