Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"... enthusiastic, well-written... read it if you want to be inspired by a truly heroic woman." --New Directions for Women

"... the fullest account to date of Stewart's life and an excellent basis for understanding Stewart's work." --History

"This is informative and inspiring source material for today's scholars, lay readers, and 'professionals'... " --Journal of American History

In gathering and introducing Stewart's works, Richardson provides an opportunity for readers to study the thoughts and words of this influential early black female activist, a forerunner to Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth and the first black American to lecture in defense of women's rights, placing her in the context of the swirling abolitionist movement.
