Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"More avant-garde than representative of the Black Arts Movement, Giovanni's militant and impassioned cry for change began her lifelong campaign for civil justice. Her support and willingness to share her life and work with Fowler make this literary biography an excellent resource for even casual readers who are interested in American, black, and feminist studies." - Choice
