Reviews

-An historical chronology of eleven interesting and determined black female journalists.- -- Washington Times -[Streitmatter] finds that their attraction to journalism cam from their desire to be advocates of racial reform, that they were courageous in the face of sexism and financial discrimination, and that they used education as their entry into journalism and subsequently received support from African-American male editors.- -- Journal of Women's History -Little research exists on African-American women journalists, even in studies of the black press. To address this gap, Streitmatter presents eleven biographies of journalists from the early nineteenth century to the present.- -- Journal of Women's History "An historical chronology of eleven interesting and determined black female journalists." -- Washington Times "[Streitmatter] finds that their attraction to journalism cam from their desire to be advocates of racial reform, that they were courageous in the face of sexism and financial discrimination, and that they used education as their entry into journalism and subsequently received support from African-American male editors." -- Journal of Women's History "Little research exists on African-American women journalists, even in studies of the black press.
