about

The first book to bring together the key writings and speeches of civil rights activist Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander – the first Black American economist

In 1921, Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander became the first Black American to gain a Ph.D. in economics. She was an attorney, economist, and civil rights activist in the oppressive and discriminatory landscape of mid-twentieth-century America. While her historical significance has been relatively ignored, Alexander was one of the chief architects of the gradual dismantling of racial segregation in the U.S.
 
This volume is the first to provide a comprehensive account of Alexander’s pioneering speeches and thought-provoking writings—many of which are published here for the first time. Nina Banks’s introductions bring fresh insight into the events and ideologies that underpinned Alexander’s pioneering outlook and activism. The book is a tribute to the intellectual thought and activism of one of the major historical figures in civil rights.
Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander (1898-1989) was an attorney, economist, and civil rights activist. She was the first Black American to gain a Ph.D. in economics, in 1921. Nina Banks is associate professor of economics and an affiliated faculty member in Women’s and Gender Studies and in Africana Studies at Bucknell University.
