Something To Prove picks up where her national bestselling memoir, The Ditchdigger's Daughters left off in which Dr. Thornton tells the story of her amazing father, Donald Thornton, who cherished a mighty dream - that all of his daughters would become medical doctors; respected professionals in white coats and scripperscraps (stethoscopes) that would shield them from the pernicious specter of prejudice. In this sequel, Dr. Thornton chronicles her life as a wife, mother and a full-time practicing obstetrician in an academic medical center becoming the first African-American woman in the country to be double-Board Certified in obstetrics, gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine.
