African-American Women in the Civil Rights Crusades

African-American Women in the Civil Rights Crusades

Many African-American women took leadership positions in the Civil Rights struggles, including Mary Church-Terrell, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, Alice Dunbar-Nelson and Mary McLeod-Bethune. The women’s right to vote, education for women, ending lynching, and addressing racial and gender discrimination could not have been achieved without these women.

Syl Woolford celebrates the lives of four extraordinary women and the crusades they waged against injustice.

Mr. Woolford is a graduate of Delaware State University with a Degree in Business Administration /Accounting and a graduate of Rutgers University with an MBA in Marketing.
