Reviews

"Hamer's heroic life story should be widely known, and this well-crafted work should find a place in most libraries."
"Bold, unapologetic, and beautiful."
"Bold, honest, informative, and unforgettable."
"This majestic biography offers a detailed, intelligible overview of Hamer's life while never losing the thread of her motivations, fears, and heroic triumphs, and places the civil rights movement in personal, local, national, and international contexts."
