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.
