Reviews

"Besides being the story of an incredibly courageous and outspoken black woman in the face of innumerable odds, the book is a valuable contribution to the social history of the United States and to the literature of the women's movement as well."--Elizabeth Kolmer "American Quarterly"
"[Wells was] a sophisticated fighter whose prose was as thorough as her intellect."--Walter Goodman "New York Times"
"No student of black history should overlook Crusade for Justice."--William M. Tuttle, Jr. "Journal of American History"
