Reviews

Successfully recounts Kennedy's dynamic life: bursting with stories of rebellion and triumph, with a backdrop of historical context and, always, a hint of mystery.--ESSENCE


Randolph . . . has done an important service for anyone who cares about fashioning a complete and complex record of post-World War II feminist activism--Women's Review of Books


An excellent and welcome biography of a fearless radical activist who has been overlooked for too long.--American Historical Review


[A] stirring biography. . . . This important book is the story, as Randolph handily tells it, of an extremely brave woman who used the courts as well as the media and worked with a multitude of groups to build and maintain coalitions and create lasting change.--Library Journal, starred review


Sherie M. Randolph has written an important biography of an important figure in twentieth-century American feminism and Black Power. I repeat 'important' because Florynce 'Flo' Kennedy self-consciously worked--actually, she agitated--at the confluence of feminism and Black Power with the conviction that racism and sexism were not only foundational in American society but also inextricably intertwined.--Nell Irvin Painter, in Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society
