Right from the beginning, women of African descent have played an important and noteworthy role in American experience. The Book of African-American Women explores the trials and tribulations, but most of all the accomplishments, of 150 women who have made major contributions to American history and culture. Some of these women are well known, while others will be a welcome addition to this emerging history. These are women who-knowingly or unknowingly-have changed American’s destiny through their contributions as writers, artists, teachers, civic leaders, medical professionals, or entrepreneurs. And there are those who simply represent the collective black experience-from the days of slavery through abolition, the civil rights movement, and beyond. Blending information and inspiration, author Tonya Bolden has assembled a truly unique collection of the lives of African-American women. With quotations from writings of and about many of these remarkable women, she presents an important new historical perspective. The elegance of her writing, and her ability to capture the essence of each individual woman’s life, make this an invaluable resource as well as a wonderful gift.
