From the Publisher"In this meticulous rendering of Amy Jacques Garvey's life and ideas, Taylor moves us to reconsider what we think we know about black women's activism during the first decades of the twentieth century. This biographer dares to go where few will in her analysis of nationalism, feminism and twentieth-century black women's political thought. Undoubtedly, this is a significant and timely contribution. (Chana Kai Lee, author of For Freedom's Sake: The Life of Fannie Lou Hamer)"
"A fine study of Marcus Garvey's second wife that is well thought out and clearly written and gives intellectual and political autonomy to its subject. It is at the same time a feminist critique of the patriarchal characteristics of Marcus Garvey and the Garvey movement. The author makes an accurate estimate of the intellectual, organizational and personal strengths of one of the most remarkable activists in Garveyite Pan-Africanism in the United States from the 1920s through to her death in Jamaica in 1973. (Rupert Lewis, author of Marcus Garvey: Anti-Colonial Champion)"
