Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Historian Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore examines an unfamiliar world in this groundbreaking study, the world of middle-class,
    educated black women at a time that was one of the nadirs of black-white relations in America. With the Supreme Court's
    affirmation of legal segregation, Southern black men found themselves disfranchised and excluded from politics. Black
    women filled that vacuum, Gilmore argues, making a place for themselves as ambassadors to the white community, and as
    activists on behalf of blacks, and bequeathing to their descendants a heritage of resistance that culminated in the
    civil rights movement of the 1950s and '60s.
