Editorial Reviews


Black Texas Women is an inspiring introduction to the struggles and accomplishments of black women in Texas since the days of the Republic.... It is through the work of Ruthe Winegarten and others like her that scarce and scattered records are being uncovered, preserved, and protected. (Texas Books in Review)

Winegarten has produced the best work available on Black women in Texas, one whose encyclopedic nature and rich documentation will make it a valuable reference work for years to come. (Journal of American History)

Occasionally a book comes along that is monumental in scope, overwhelming in amount of research, and so powerful in its impact as to be categorized at once as a lasting contribution to our knowledge of humankind. Black Texas Women is one of those rare books.... Highly recommended. (Review of Texas Books)

Winegarten, a prolific and competent independent scholar of Texas history, enriches understanding of the Lone Star State with this long-needed and well-done study of the African American women of Texas, from the Spanish colonial era to the present. (Choice)


Black Texas Women: 150 Years of Trial and Triumph by Ruthe Winegarten is a wonderful tribute to black Texas women. African-American women have often struggled on two fronts, battling both sexism and racism. We can all gain inspiration from these women, from the Yellow Rose of Texas, Emily Morgan, the heroine of the Texas Revolution, to Dr. Connie Yerwood Conner, the first black physician on the staff of the Texas Department of Health. My own inspirations come from civil rights activist Juanita Craft, the legendary Barbara Jordan, and the indomitable Wilhelmina Delco. These women were and are pioneers in their own communities and also great Texans. They make us all proud. (Ann W. Richards, Governor of Texas)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book arrived in excellent condition on Dec.23rd! It was to late to be given to a friend as a Christmas gift but I will present it to him later. I understand how and why a lot of gifts were delayed so as adults to do not need to believe in Santa Claus anymore it does not matter.
