Book Title: African American Women's Rhetoric: The Search for Dignity, Personhood, and Honor

Author: Deborah Atwater

Book Description:

I selected this book for three reasons: (1) the distinctive thematic focus which highlights African American women’s moral rhetoric and stamina in the context of their socio-political struggles; (2) its rigorous scholarship which illuminates new and familiar historical facts with fresh and innovative interpretations; and (3) the inspiring author whose collegiality, dedication, research and service duly honor the rich legacy of all African American women who have labored both within and outside academe.
