African American Women Confront the West, 1600-2000
Edited by Quintard Taylor, Shirley Ann Wilson Moore
390 pages. Softcover
This is the first major historical anthology on the topic of African American women who helped shape the American West. The editors of the book argue that African American women in the West played active, though sometimes unacknowledged, roles in shaping the political, ideological and social currents that have influenced the United States over the past three centuries.
“These articles … will do much to correct the omission and the invisibility of African American women from the history of the West.” American Historical Review.
