This is the first book ever published in the United States on the subject of black women. In a tribute to the unheard voices of black women, Josephine Carson explores, in the American South, the lives of black women among whom she lived and traveled and interprets the voices that have never before been heard. She paints a detailed picture of the teachers, middle-class housewives, young college girls, nurses, domestic servants, and workers who struggled with the juxtaposition between their own identities and those society created for them. Carson shows what a significant contribution these women made to the American scene through their religions, friends, jobs and cultures, but above all through their formerly silent voices.
