Hope and Dignity: Older Black Women of the South

by Emily Herring Wilson

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[This] excellent book offers moving portraits of women whose lives have previously received little notice. Their attainments deserve to be recorded, for their sake and as a demonstration of how a repressed people live with dignity and hope."
Philadelphia Inquirer

"Hope and Dignity proves that there can be trust and truth between women; that a brutally racist society can damage but not completely deaden the giving heart."
Women's Review of Books

"An overlooked chapter in American black history earns fresh attention in Hope and Dignity.... Highly recommended."
Los Angeles Times
