The social progress of Texan black women now surpasses that of black males and white females. In this unique anthology, regional historians chronicle the black women’s history from interracial Mexican culture and slavery to Civil Rights-era activism and current political engagement. The historians deftly show how personal determination, family, community and especially education have brought black women into all professions and political offices in the Lone Star State.
