Sisters in the Struggle African American Women in the Civil Rights Black Power Movement

Women were at the forefront of the civil rights struggle but their individual stories were rarely heard Only recently have historians begun to recognize the central role women played in the battle for racial eualityIn Sisters in the Struggle we hear about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movements such as Ella Baker who helped found the Student Non Violent Coordinating Committee Fannie Lou Hamer a sharecropper who took on segregation in the Democratic party and won and Septima Clark who created a ne This anthology was a great chronological account of African American women s participation in US movements for racial justice It goes from the social club days of the 1930s into electoral politics of the 1990sThe best essays focused on one individual and her organizing strategy They illuminated the moment in history that the women lived exploring the context that shaped their politics They examined those politics in depth Finally these essays took seriously the emotional and interpersonal experiences of the women they profiled These essays definitely are worth study by activists today do these methods still resonate In what ways were they effective and ineffective How can they be applied in different contextsThe essays on and the methods of Fannie Lou Hamer Ella Baker and Septima Clark stood out Each had a different version of a shared organizing vision grassroots community organizing that valued individual experiences and stayed sharply focused on material needs Really good stuff and phenomenal heroesAs the book gets further along in history the individual stories are replaced by broader analysis of gender s role within the Civil Rights and Black Power movements Individual struggles and voices are replaced by surveys of anti sexism in the writing of Malcolm X and in the Black Panther Party Basically Sisters in the Struggle stops showing and starts telling Participants experiences their oppressions outside and within the movement and the strategic decisions they make to navigate these different obstacles in short all the human elements that made the first half of this book so compelling are swallowed by statistics and academic language
