Reviews

"Marian Spencer's story weaves together the private and the public in a way that provides a new understanding of the adage from the 1970s women's movement, 'the personal is political.' Keep on Fighting, like Marian Spencer herself, disarms the reader as we find not a story of unmitigated success and happiness, but rather a nuanced and realistic autobiography that weaves together the joys and sorrows of a long life.... Marian Spencer has much to teach the subsequent generations about resistance, equality, and the meaning of American freedom."--From the introduction by Mary E. Frederickson, coeditor of Gendered Resistance: Women, Slavery, and the Legacy of Margaret Garner
