Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Women in the Civil Rights Movement] helps break the gender line that restricted women in civil rights history to background and backstage roles, and places them in front, behind, and in the middle of the Southern movement that re-made America.... It is an invaluable resource which helps set history straight." --Julian Bond

"... remains one of the best single sources currently available on the unique contributions of Black women in the desegregation movement." --Manning Marable

Rewrites the history of the civil rights movement, recognizing the contributions of Black women.
