Abiding Courage is a masterful study that helps us understand the crucial nexus between race, gender, and culture in explaining both the World War II-era black migration and its profound consequences for the San Francisco Bay Area.--Quintard Taylor, University of Oregon
A seminal work. Writing with an unambiguous purpose--to examine the migration and community-building efforts of African American women who moved from the South to the East Bay cities of California during WW II--the author presents, in an endearing style, the experiences of women about whom little has been written.--Choice
A valuable book that will be useful in the study of several intersecting areas of study and that will lend itself readily to use in the classroom. . . . Santangelo uses oral history for what it does best: to convey a sense of narrators' values and views of the world and to render visible aspects of their lives that elude the written record."American Historical Review
Abiding Courage is a well-researched and deeply felt study of the thousands of black women who left the Gulf states during World War II to work in shipbuilding and other defense industries in the San Francisco area. . . . A valuable collective portrait of a generation's achievements.--New York Times Book Review
