The book discussion is open to the public and will take place on the University of Louisiana Monroe campus at the library in room 458.
The book being discussed is "Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All" by M. Jones.
“An elegant and expansive history” (New York Times) of African American women’s pursuit of political power—and how it transformed America
In Vanguard, acclaimed historian Martha S. Jones offers a new history of African American women’s political lives in America. She recounts how they defied both racism and sexism to fight for the ballot, and how they wielded political power to secure the equality and dignity of all persons. From the earliest days of the republic to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and beyond, Jones excavates the lives and work of Black women—Maria Stewart, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Fannie Lou Hamer, and more—who were the vanguard of women’s rights, calling on America to realize its best ideals.
Now revised to discuss the election of Vice President Kamala Harris and the vital contributions of Black women in the 2020 elections, Vanguard is essential reading for anyone who cares about the past and future of American democracy.
