Montclair author’s pandemic book an international finalist

Powered primarily by love and occasional loss, Anna Henny Dabney, 82, of Oakland, has led a quiet but remarkable and unexpected life. Born and raised in South Texas during the Jim Crow era, her father was a Dutch immigrant born in 1888 who fought in World War I. Despite their surroundings, he taught his daughter that most of the world is darker-skinned and that just a minority is White and not especially deserving of privilege.
