Freedom's Daughters (Excerpt)
Lynne Olson's Freedom's Daughters shines light on the often-overlooked role that women played in the civil rights movement. In the preface to her book, Olson sketches some brief biographies of a few of the outstanding female civil rights leaders and activists, notes the intersection between the civil rights and women's movements, and sets out to rectify what she characterizes as the omission of women from most historical and journalistic accounts of the era.
