From the Publisher"A brilliant, compelling, and completely convincing revision of the meaning of Garveyism as a whole."
"Makes valuable contributions to our understanding of the Garvey movement and black Southern life, bringing gender analysis to bear on these topics in new and productive ways."
—Journal of American Studies
"Technically solid, with clear writing and organization, and would be ideal for classroom use with undergraduates. . . . Nicely balances more general social history with well-timed accounts from inside and outside the UNIA."
"Not only shines much needed light on an overlooked segment of Garveyites but also illuminates the interior lives of rural black Southerners. . . . A welcome addition to the scholarship of Garveyism."
— Arkansas Historical Quarterly
This is an extremely important piece of scholarship.
