Editorial Reviews

Review

“The informative essays in Black Women in Texas History demonstrate substantial command of secondary and archival materials and collectively make an essential contribution to the fields of Black Women's studies, African American, Southern, and Texas history. Editors Bruce A. Glasrud and Merline Pitre have assembled an impressive array of scholars whose compellingly written contributions deepen our understanding of the complex ways in which African American women made an organized community life, and shaped race, gender, and class dynamics in the Lone Star State.”--Dr. Darlene Clark Hine, Northwestern University; editor, Black Women in America
(Dr. Darlene Clark Hine, Northwestern University; editor, Black Women in America)

"The book is written for the general public, but the research and notes make it useful for historians, too.
(Choice 2009-03-01)

"Rich in historiography, meticulously researched and written. . ."
(The Chronicles of Oklahoma 2008-12-01)

Not as thorough as I would have liked. I was looking for more precise information, but this is only cursory information. I would not recommend it to others.
