Overview

Praise for ELLA BAKER

"The definitive biography of Ella Baker, a force behind the civil rights movement and almost every social justice movement of this century."—Gloria Steinem

"This book will be received with plaudits for its empathy, insightfulness, and gendered narration of an astonishingly neglected life that was pivotal in the pursuit of American justice and humanity."—David Levering Lewis Pulitzer Prize-winning author of W. E. B. Du Bois

"Pathbreaking. By illuminating the little-known story of how profoundly Ella Baker influenced the most radical activists of the era, Grant's graceful portrayal reveals Miss Baker's transformative impact on recent history."—Kathleen Cleaver
