Overview

Lugenia Burns Hope: Black Southern Reformer / Edition 1

From the turn of the century until her death in 1947, Lugenia Burns Hope worked to promote black equality -- in Atlanta as the wife of John Hope, president of both Morehouse College and Atlanta University, and on a national level in her discussions with such influential leaders as W. E. B. Du Bois and Jessie Daniel Ames. Highlighting the life of the zealous reformer, Jacqueline Anne Rouse offers a portrait of a seemingly tireless woman who worked to build the future of her race.
