From Booklist:

Gr. 9-12. More thorough and well-written than previous biographies of the late congresswoman, this absorbing title respects the privacy that Jordan maintained in her lifetime and focuses primarily on her remarkable career in public life. An introductory chapter addresses the climate of segregation into which Jordan was born. Illustrated with selected photos of Jordan and period political events, the following chapters trace her rise through elected office to become the first black woman from the South ever elected to the U.S. Congress, followed by her abrupt retirement from public office. Mendelsohn retells career highlights, such as Jordan's famous speech at the 1976 Democratic National Convention, with an appealing mix of precision and awe. Source notes and further resources conclude. A fine biography for use in history and political-science classes, as well as for personal interest. Gillian Engberg
