Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hewitt focuses upon post-Reconstruction Tampa, Florida, home to diverse peoples who arrived from distant points on the globe, especially southern Europe and the Caribbean.... An ethnic mixture of women spawned activism in revolutionary clubs and organizations, 'woven by African American, Latin, and Anglo women who sought to make sense and create order out of the upheavals of their time.' ... Hewitt's book revises previous notions about the biracialism of Jim Crow.... Outstanding scholarship." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This was an interesting and informative read about women's activism in Tampa at the turn of the 20th century. I liked the additional point of view the author provides through describing women's activism in the eyes of Anglo, African American and Latin women. The book describes how Tampa's biracial society had to adapt to the introduction of Latin immigrants ("Latin" in this book is used to describe Cubans, Spanish, Italians, etc.) and learn how to function as a multiracial society. Citizens were dealing with Spanish_american war, the introduction of Jim Crow laws, the feminist movement, and the question of how to best categorize the new Latin population in an increasingly segregated society.

The book contains a few pictures of some of the key names and places mentioned. Great addition. The one aspect of this book that prevented me rating it higher was the author's writing style. She uses numerous run on sentences which make this an exhausting read. It took me longer than usual to read this book, but I would recommend it nonetheless.
