"Readers will cherish this accessible portrait of a lesser-known civil rights figure."
--Publishers Weekly

"I can't imagine any book that could tell you more about this country or about the human spirit."
--Gloria Steinem "With Her Fist Raised is a testament to the impact, diversity, and reach of African American women's leadership and activism. Guided by Lovett's careful and thorough research, this story of Dorothy Pitman Hughes's life enhances the way we understand intersectional activism and social movements in the United States through her fight for civil rights, community empowerment, and childcare. She emerges from the shadow of Steinem as a force in her own right."
--Francoise Hamlin, author of Crossroads at Clarksdale: The Black Freedom Struggle in the Mississippi Delta after World War II
