Description

Please join us.  In this month's selection, author Lynne Olson, tells a story of the extraordinary women who were among the most fearless, resourceful, and tenacious leaders of the civil rights movement.  This is an account of women making difficult choices, trying to balance lives as wives and mothers with their all-consuming work, defying society's standards of proper female behavior.

Freedom's Daughters puts a human face on the civil rights struggle -- and shows that that face was often female. The author reminds us that the report of women fighting for civil rights began much earlier than the 1950s, there is a much larger history of women's activism.
