Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Ain't I a Woman is one of the most interesting, lucid books dealing with the subject of Feminism. The book can be recommended wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in black history, in women's history, or in that much-overlooked connection between the two. Maria K. Mootry Ikerionwu, Phylon (1983)
