Reviews
"Though only 80 pages long, this wonderful work beams with a racial pride that radiates out well beyond its diminutive dimensions"--Publishers Weekly on Fighting for Freedom "The work in Through the African American Lens is compelling and historic"--Maurice Berger, The New York Times, Lens "Does a brilliant job of extracting the singularly unique experience of black women throughout the 20th century"--Nicole Crowder, The Washington Post, In Sight on African American Women "Though the collection features both portraits and candid shots, taken together they offer a window into both individual lives and the arc of American history"--Liz Ronk, TIME
