About this Item: ROWMAN LITTLEFIELD, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Emerging from the darkness of the slave era and Reconstruction, black activist women Lucy Craft Laney, Mary McLeod Bethune, Charlotte Hawkins Brown, and Nannie Helen Burroughs founded schools aimed at liberating African-American youth from disadvantaged futures in the segregated and decidedly unequal South. From the late nineteenth through mid-twentieth centuries, these individuals fought discrimination as members of a larger movement of black women who uplifted future generations through a focus on education, social service, and cultural transformation. Born free, but with the shadow of the slave past still implanted in their consciousness, Laney, Bethune, Brown, and Burroughs built off each other s successes and learned from each other s struggles as administrators, lecturers, and suffragists. Drawing from the women s own letters and writings about educational methods and from remembrances of surviving students, Audrey Thomas McCluskey reveals the pivotal significance of this sisterhood s legacy for later generations and for the institution of education itself.

About this Item: University of Georgia Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Volume 1 ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title explores the diverse and changing patterns of Georgia women s lives. This first of two volumes extends from the founding of the colony of Georgia in 1733 up to the Progressive era. From the beginning, Georgia women were instrumental in shaping the state, yet most histories minimize their contributions. The essays in this volume include women of many ethnicities and classes who played an important role in Georgia s history. Though sources for understanding the lives of women in Georgia during the colonial period are scarce, the early essays profile Mary Musgrove, an important player in the relations between the Creek nation and the British Crown, and the loyalist Elizabeth Johnston, who left Georgia for Nova Scotia in 1806. Another essay examines the near-mythical quality of the American Revolution - era accounts of Georgia s War Woman , Nancy Hart. The later essays are multifaceted in their examination of the way different women experienced Georgia s antebellum social and political life, the tumult of the Civil War, and the lingering consequences of both the conflict itself and Emancipation. After the war, both necessity and opportunity changed women s lives, as educated white women like Eliza Andrews established or taught in schools and as African American women like Lucy Craft Laney, who later founded the Haines Institute, attended school for the first time. Georgia Women also profiles reform-minded women like Mary Latimer McLendon, Rebecca Latimer Felton, Mildred Rutherford, Nellie Peters Black, and Martha Berry, who worked tirelessly for causes ranging from temperance to suffrage to education. The stories of the women portrayed in this volume provide valuable glimpses into the lives and experiences of all Georgia women during the first century and a half of the state s existence.

About this Item: New York University Press, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The years between the collapse of Reconstruction and the end of World War I mark a pivotal moment in African American cultural production. Christened the Post-Bellum-Pre-Harlem era by the novelist Charles Chesnutt, these years look back to the antislavery movement and forward to the artistic flowering and racial self-consciousness of the Harlem Renaissance. Post-Bellum, Pre-Harlem offers fresh perspectives on the literary and cultural achievements of African American men and women during this critically neglected, though vitally important, period of our nation s past. Using a wide range of disciplinary approaches, the sixteen scholars gathered here offer both a reappraisal and celebration of African American cultural production during these influential decades. Alongside discussions of political and artistic icons such as Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Henry Ossawa Tanner, and James Weldon Johnson are essays revaluing figures such as the writers Paul and Alice Dunbar-Nelson, the New England painter Edward Mitchell Bannister, and Georgia-based activists Lucy Craft Laney and Emmanuel King Love. Contributors explore an array of forms from fine art to anti-lynching drama, from sermons to ragtime and blues, and from dialect pieces and early black musical theater to serious fiction. Contributors include: Frances Smith Foster, Carla L. Peterson, Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw, Audrey Thomas McCluskey, Barbara Ryan, Robert M. Dowling, Barbara A. Baker, Paula Bernat Bennett, Philip J. Kowalski, Nikki L. Brown, Koritha A. Mitchell, Margaret Crumpton Winter, Rhonda Reymond, and Andrew J. Scheiber. Seller Inventory # AAV9780814731680

About this Item: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. Hardcover. Condition: New. 200 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.In the late 19th through the mid-20th century a small group of women overcame personal and racial hardships to gain national prominence as school founders and social activists. This book takes a biographical look at Lucy Craft Laney, Mary McLeod Bethune, Nannie Helen Burroughs, and Charlotte Hawkins Brown and places them in relationship to each other, their shared mission to sustain their struggling schools, and their mutual dedication to educating African American youth. Their leadership as social activists, lecturers, suffragists, was an extension of their work in womens organizations and the networks they produced. Through her research and their letters to one another, author Audrey McCluskey documents their collective achievements and individual foibles. With Lucy Laney, their elder and inspiration, the women formed a sisterhood of purpose and left a unique legacy for those that followed. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: University of Georgia Press, United States, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Volume 1 ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Exploring the diverse and changing patterns of Georgia women s lives, this first of two volumes extends from the founding of the colony of Georgia in 1733 up to the Progressive era. From the beginning, Georgia women were instrumental in shaping the state, yet most histories minimize their contributions. The essays in this volume include women of many ethnicities and classes who played an important role in Georgia s history. Though sources for understanding the lives of women in Georgia during the colonial period are scarce, the early essays profile Mary Musgrove, an important player in the relations between the Creek nation and the British Crown, and the loyalist Elizabeth Johnston, who left Georgia for Nova Scotia in 1806. Another essay examines the nearmythical quality of the American Revolution - era accounts of Georgia s War Woman , Nancy Hart. The later essays are multifaceted in their examination of the way different women experienced Georgia s antebellum social and political life, the tumult of the Civil War, and the lingering consequences of both the conflict itself and Emancipation. After the war, both necessity and opportunity changed women s lives, as educated white women like Eliza Andrews established or taught in schools and as African American women like Lucy Craft Laney, who later founded the Haines Institute, attended school for the first time. Georgia Women also profiles reform-minded women like Mary Latimer McLendon, Rebecca Latimer Felton, Mildred Rutherford, Nellie Peters Black, and Martha Berry, who worked tirelessly for causes ranging from temperance to suffrage to education. The stories of the women portrayed in this volume provide valuable glimpses into the lives and experiences of all Georgia women during the first century and a half of the state s existence.

About this Item: New York University Press, United States, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The years between the collapse of Reconstruction and the end of World War I mark a pivotal moment in African American cultural production. Christened the Post-Bellum-Pre-Harlem era by the novelist Charles Chesnutt, these years look back to the antislavery movement and forward to the artistic flowering and racial self-consciousness of the Harlem Renaissance. Post-Bellum, Pre-Harlem offers fresh perspectives on the literary and cultural achievements of African American men and women during this critically neglected, though vitally important, period of our nation s past. Using a wide range of disciplinary approaches, the sixteen scholars gathered here offer both a reappraisal and celebration of African American cultural production during these influential decades. Alongside discussions of political and artistic icons such as Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, Henry Ossawa Tanner, and James Weldon Johnson are essays revaluing figures such as the writers Paul and Alice Dunbar-Nelson, the New England painter Edward Mitchell Bannister, and Georgia-based activists Lucy Craft Laney and Emmanuel King Love. Contributors explore an array of forms from fine art to anti-lynching drama, from sermons to ragtime and blues, and from dialect pieces and early black musical theater to serious fiction. Contributors include: Frances Smith Foster, Carla L. Peterson, Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw, Audrey Thomas McCluskey, Barbara Ryan, Robert M. Dowling, Barbara A. Baker, Paula Bernat Bennett, Philip J. Kowalski, Nikki L. Brown, Koritha A. Mitchell, Margaret Crumpton Winter, Rhonda Reymond, and Andrew J. Scheiber. Seller Inventory # APC9780814731673

About this Item: The Associated Publishers, Washington, DC, 1931. First Edition. 12mo; 187pp; brown cloth with title in gilt. Some minor cover spotting, else very good. 28pp. of plates, photo illustrations of African American women leaders. WOMEN BUILDERS features the biographies of seven African-American women who founded institutions for the African American community. Included in this volume are Lucy Craft Laney, Maggie Lena Walker, Janie Porter Barrett, Nannie Helen Burroughs, Charlotte Hawkins Brown, Jane Edna Hunter, and Mary McLeod Bethune. Heirs to the work of the humanitarian movements of the early to mid-1800s and the gains of the post-Civil War era push for Black education and enlightenment, these women became both "builders of educational, financial and social institutions" and builders of their race. Sharing a common interest in improving social conditions for Black Americans and creating financial and educational opportunities where they had previously not existed, these women influenced each other as well as society at large. The focus of this book is on the lives of individuals, not on the "bricks and mortar" of buildings and institutions. The author believes in the Emerson quote that "an institution is but the lengthened shadow of a great personality." Instead of merely examining the institutions themselves, Daniel looks at the women behind the schools, banks, and institutes she chronicles. The result is an inspirational volume on the accomplishments of pioneering Black women. "These founders," Daniel writes, "are not mere visionaries with ephemeral dreams, but women of action whose character has been tempered in the forge-fire of anxiety and sacrifice." These women and their institutions are Lucy Craft Laney, 1854-1933 (Haines Normal and Industrial Institute, Augusta, Ga.); Maggie Lena Walker, 1867-1934 (the St. Luke Penny Savings Bank, Richmond, Va.); Janie Porter Barrett, 1865-1948 (Virginia Industrial School for Colored Girls, Peake, Va.); Mary Mcleod Bethune, 1875-1955 (Bethune-Cookman College, Daytona Beach, Fl.); Nannie Helen Burroughs, 1879-1961 (National Training School for Women and Girls, Wash., D.C.); Charlotte Hawkins Brown, 1882-1963 (Alice Freeman Palmer Memorial Institute, Sedalia, N. C.); Jane Edna Hunter, 1882-1971 (Philiss Wheatly Association, Cleveland, O.). Heirs to the work of the humanitarian movements of the early to mid-1800's and the gains of the post-Civil War era push for Black education and enlightenment, these women shared a common interest in improving social conditions for their race by creating financial and educational opportunities which hitherto had not existed; they were influential both upon themselves and upon society at large. The emphasis of WOMAN BUILDERS is on the lives of these individuals. Walker was the first woman bank president in the United States, and founded the Richmond Council of Colored Women. Barrett, the first president of the Virginia State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs, was active in both the National Association of Colored Women and the NAACP; her aforementioned school was for delinquents and achieved an outstanding rehabilitation record. Laney's had established the first kindergarten for African American children in Augusta (and one of the earliest in the south) and the first Nurses Training Institute for African American girls; her secondary school sent graduates to some of the leading colleges in the south; she was praised by President Taft and inducted into the Georgia Women of Achievement in 1992. Bethune, the first African American woman to become a presidential advisor when F. D. R. appointed her director of Negro Affairs, also served three other presidents and was president of the National Association of Colored Women and founder of the National Council of Negro Women. Miss Burroughs' school was founded under the auspices of the National Baptist Convention and was a pioneer fort in several ways. Brown was vice-president of the National Association of Colored Women, a member of several interracial commis. Seller Inventory # 8032
