Product Details

Editorial Reviews


"A remarkable collection of individual stories . . . . Hicks succeeds in opening up a new conversation about early twentieth-century New York, one in which black working-class women's voices are finally heard."--American Historical Review

"A masterly study of black women, reform, and the criminal justice system."--Journal of American History

"[Hicks] gives voice to women who have not been studied thus far. Recommended. Undergraduate and graduate studies." --Choice

Book Description

"An excellent, often riveting series of portraits of working-class black women in New York City whose lives intersect with social reform, city policing, the first sexual revolution, and the great migration of southern African Americans to the North. Hicks provides an ambitious and important corrective to the scant treatment of these women by academic historians."--Patricia Schechter, Portland State University
