Throughout the world, black women have played historically significant parts in the struggle for racial justice and equality. Whether lobbying against slavery or challenging segregation and discrimination, many prominent black women have recognized that the fight for racial equality is deeply entwined with the fight for sexual equality. The selections in this volume profile some of history's most influential black women activists, from abolitionists Maria Stewart and Sojourner Truth through Rosa Parks and Winnie Mandela.
"This title concerns itself with 11 women who have been instrumental in the fight for black freedom, both in this country and abroad. "...particularly informative, adding materials written or spoken by a number of the subjects themselves."
