Editorial Reviews

"Church, school, and club constitute the triumvirate of associations central to the lives of the 60 Afro-American women born in the United States or Canada between the mid-1740s and the end of the nineteenth century and chronicled in Homespun Heroines and Other Women of Distinction....It isdistinguished as a collaborative effort by a group of self-confident and historically self-conscious black women who were determined to preserve the stories of sacrifice and struggle their forebears had endured."--Randall K. Burkett, in his Introduction
