Louisiana native Iris Duplantier Rideau became the first Creole Black woman to own a winery in the U.S. in October 1997. She shares her journey of making history in her newly released book, "From White to Black: One Life Between Two Worlds."

Host Sheree Williams talks with Iris about life as a child in Louisiana and California and the life experiences that both changed her and helped to make her the proud Black woman she is today.
