Query: Shirley Tucker, author of _Mississippi From Within_ and a Chicago journalist

I'm seeking any information on Shirley Tucker, author of Mississippi From Within (New York: Arco, 1965). I've read that Tucker was a "Chicago journalist and columnist," but that's all I know. Thanks for any assistance. Please reply to browntre@mst.edu.
