ABOUT THE BOOK:
Eslanda “Essie” Cardozo Goode Robeson was a woman of unusual accomplishment— an anthropologist, a prolific journalist, a tireless advocate of women’s rights, an outspoken anti- colonial and antiracist activist, and an internationally sought- after speaker.
“This long overdue biography of a bold scholar- activist emerging from the shadow of her famous husband is a gift, and such are Ransby’s narrative skills that I wept when, in her final pages, the vibrant Essie died, two days shy of 70. This is a major contribution to her glorious reclamation project.”
Joan Steinau Lester, Ms. Magazine
