Editorial Reviews


Living for the Revolution is a fabulous book with rich data and fine analysis. To date, nothing has been written that fills this particular historical vacuum. African American women’s participation in the feminist movement has only been told from the point of view of white feminists or in bits and pieces by others.”—Belinda Robnett, author of How Long? How Long? African-American Women in the Struggle for Civil Rights

Living for the Revolution will force scholars working on either the women’s movement or black liberation to change their standard narrative.”—Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
