African American Women in the Struggle for the Vote, 1850-1920.
Rosalyn Terborg-Penn. 166 pages.
"This comprehensive look at the African American women who fought for the right to vote analyzes the women’s own stories and examines why they joined and how they participated in the U.S. women’s suffrage movement. Terborg-Penn shows how every political and racial effort to keep African American women disfranchised met with their active resistance until black women finally achieved full citizenship."
