From the Back Cover
A cornerstone of black feminist and political theory, this collection of essays focuses on racial progress and women's rights. A Voice from the South, written in 1892, is regarded as the first statement of black feminism. Despite their imprint of nineteenth-century social thought, these essays possess an urgent, modern tone, characterized by an emphasis on debate and a scintillating wit. Topics include the importance of women's education as well as African Americans' economic roles and their literary representation.
A noted member of Washington, D.C.'s African American community, Anna Julia Cooper (1858-1964) rose to prominence as a leading scholar, educator, and activist at the end of the nineteenth century. Born into slavery, she was the fourth African American woman to earn a doctoral degree, receiving a PhD in history from the University of Paris-Sorbonne in 1924. This edition includes an informative Introduction to Cooper's life and work by Janet Neary.

Mostly, she wants blacks to be their best and accept only the highest standards for themselves. Women should conduct themselves with virtue and dignity, and men should be worthy of women's love, trust, and acclaim.
The book itself is 6x9" and better quality soft cover book. The print size is also for best reading, in my opinion.
