Praise for ELLA BAKER
"Splendid biography . . . a valuable contribution to the growing body of literature on the critical roles of women in civil rights."--Joyce A. Ladner, The Washington Post Book World
"The definitive biography of Ella Baker, a force behind the civil rights movement and almost every social justice movement of this century."--Gloria Steinem
"This book will be received with plaudits for its empathy, insightfulness, and gendered narration of an astonishingly neglected life that was pivotal in the pursuit of American justice and humanity."--David Levering Lewis Pulitzer Prize-winning author of W. E. B. Du Bois
"Pathbreaking. By illuminating the little-known story of how profoundly Ella Baker influenced the most radical activists of the era, Grant's graceful portrayal reveals Miss Baker's transformative impact on recent history."--Kathleen Cleaver

Portrait

JOANNE GRANT began her career in civil rights as assistant to NAACP founder W. E. B. Du Bois. While working as a reporter for the National Guardian in the 1960s, she joined the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and became a close associate of Ella Baker. She produced Fundi: The Story of Ella Baker, a documentary film nationally telecast on PBS, and is the editor of Black Protest, a classic documentary history, and Confrontation on Campus. She lives in New York City.

Pressestimmen

"Ella Baker, one woman worth reading about. The cover photo alone is worth the price of the book. Ella Baker clutches her ballpoint pen, eyeglass case and big purse. She's wearing a blue wool coat, earbobs and Sunday school hat. It's a portrait of a lifelong activist."--The Atlanta Journal Constitution "Splendid biography ... A valuable contribution to the growing body of literature on the critical roles of women in civil rights."--The Washington Post Book World "A warm, tender, and incisive portrait of an unheralded mover in this century's struggle for the rights of African Americans."--Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund "The definitive biography of Ella Baker, a force behind the civil rights movement and almost every social justice movement of this century."--Gloria Steinem "Will be received with plaudits for its empathy, insightfulness, and gendered narration of an astonishingly neglected life that was pivotal in the pursuit of American justice and humanity."--David Levering Lewis, Pulitzer prize-winning author of W.E.B. DuBois
