Reviews

Praise for The Black Cabinet

"A well-researched, urgent, and necessary history of black folks during the New Deal that excavates the too often ignored history of black female genius behind racial progress."--Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times bestselling author

"Jill Watts' timely, deeply absorbing narrative unravels the little known but highly significant behind-the scenes account of Franklin D. Roosevelt's unofficial Black Cabinet, and their relentless determination that New Deal socio-economic justice include Black Americans. The voices of the historical actors come right through the pages and give a flavor to the narrative as though you were actually on the scene. . . A powerful piece of scholarship and a great story."--Margaret Washington, author of Sojourner Truth's America
