Outstanding Black Women of Yalobusha County: Their stories and their contributions to a Mississippi Community Paperback

The black women featured in this book made a way out of no way–and not just any old way, – but a good way. They got in good trouble long before the late Congressman John Lewis coined the phrase – strong, black and southern and no doubt just like his mother. They wanted more for their children than they would live to see or obtain. Just imagine how much better our society might be now had these women been given the rights and privileges of white Americans. These Black women were left behind, but they refused to quit. For if they had, we would not have former first lady Michelle Obama, activist Stacey Abrams and Kamala Harris, the first black woman vice president of the United States of America.
