During her short life, Ruby Doris Smith Robinson became one of the most important leaders in the black struggle for equality.

Cynthia Griggs Fleming's beautifully written biography of this incredible woman demonstrates that Robinson's activism wasn't limited to racial equality: she was an equally eloquent and powerful voice for women's rights.
