"The Circles God Draws"

Created: 02/27/2014 12:47 PM WHEC.com

Ruth Holland Scott won't say how old she is because, "People put you in a box when you tell them how old you are."

Suffice it to say, Scott has lived a life of activism and political involvement in Rochester, which gives her lots to talk about in her memoir, "The Circles God Draws."  

As the first African-American woman on Rochester's City Council, she has led the way for many women to become politically active and her message remains, "Be True to Yourself."

Press play on the video player for Rebecca Leclair's interview and how to find her memoir so you can read it yourself.
