27 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Timothy B. Tyson on May 28, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Ella Baker must be the most underrated figure in U.S. history. There are plenty of Presidents who have done less to shape their own times than Ella Baker. She decisively shaped two of the most important national civil rights organizations--the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference--and was the single most decisive figure in a third--the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Only Martin Luther King Jr. can be considered a rival in importance to the African American freedom movement, and yet most Americans have never even heard of Ella Baker. This exhaustively researched and well written biography should go a long way toward filling that gap.
This is a thoughful, analytical, and well-told story about a uniquely important American political life. It is a work of central importance in United States history and especially the history of the African American freedom movement. It is a cutting edge work of black women's history, too. I plan to buy a stack of them for Christmas presents, and to assign this book to my students for many years to come.

Dr. Ransby provides a well-structured and insightful biography of one of the most important, yet least well-known, leaders of the civil rights movement in the United States. This book is strongly recommended for any student of modern U.S. history.

Barbara Ransby is a brilliant historian, a good writer who bring this important American figure to life. Ransby is one of our most important historians, and Ella Baker unknown to most Americans had profound influence on the 20th century and on the lives of young Civil Rights workers in the 1950's and 60's. Ransby captured it in all its power and nuance.

This is a good historical text. From a very radical perspective, text is easy to follow and enjoyable to the reader.
