About the Author

Barbara Ransby is a historian, author and longtime activist. She is author of the acclaimed biography, Ella Baker and the Black Freedom Movement. Barbara was one of the founders of African American Women in Defense of Ourselves in 1991 and the Black Radical Congress in 1998. She is Editor of the journal, Souls: A Critical Journal of Black Politics, Culture and Society, and Professor and Director of the Social Justice Initiative at the University of Illinois at Chicago


"In a political moment where Black liberatory work rarely includes time for archiving, reflection, and record-keeping, Making All Black Lives Matter is a critical contribution. . . . Essentially, where mainstream narratives proclaim that movements and protests simply erupt erratically from anger, pure emotion, and vengeance, Ransby is a balm. She shows how every mass-led struggle sits atop the labor, sacrifices, and investments of many organizers who will never be seen, named, or rewarded for their contributions."--Black Perspectives
