In the years following reconstruction, newly founded southern colleges for Afro-Americans admitted hundreds of black women students. The students left these schools imbued with Christian missionary zeal and a strong sense of racial solidarity. Determined to use their educations to benefit other Afro-Americans, they became indefatigable educators, social workers, nurses, and organizers of local and national groups dedicated to community improvement and social change. Afro-American Women of the South and the Advancement of the Race brings to light the remarkable accomplishments of these black women in public and private education, social welfare, public health, and civil rights. Through a detailed examination of black clubwomen's activities in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia, Cynthia Neverdon-Morton reveals the origins of female networks with national importance during the Progressive era and beyond. --From dust jacket
