Overview

"... enthusiastic, well-written... read it if you want to be inspired by a truly heroic woman." —New Directions for Women

"... the fullest account to date of Stewart’s life and an excellent basis for understanding Stewart’s work." —History

"This is informative and inspiring source material for today’s scholars, lay readers, and ‘professionals’... " —Journal of American History

In gathering and introducing Stewart’s works, Richardson provides an opportunity for readers to study the thoughts and words of this influential early black female activist, a forerunner to Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth and the first black American to lecture in defense of women’s rights, placing her in the context of the swirling abolitionist movement.
