Reinforced Library Binding
Special Price $21.75 Regular Price $29.00
From the first attempts to end slavery in the 1800s to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, women were in the forefront of the struggle to achieve equality for Black Americans. Rosa Parks in Montgomery and Viola Desmond in Canada both sparked effective mass movements that led to change, while other women led the way in educating Black voters and organizing protests such as lunch-counter sit-ins and the Freedom Rides. As soon as they could, Black women played an active role in local, state, and federal government, paving the way for more women of color than ever to sit in the U.S. Congress. This book tells the stories of the pioneers who made this possible.
