Ella Baker & the Black Freedom Movement

by Barbara Ransby
£14.95   paperback  University of North Carolina Press (2003)

Ella Baker & the Black Freedom Movement by Barbara Ransby One of the most important African American leaders of the twentieth century and perhaps the most influential woman in the civil rights movement, Ella Baker (1903-1986) was an activist whose remarkable career spanned fifty years and touched thousands of lives.
 
In this deeply researched biography, Barbara Ransby chronicles Baker's long and rich political career as an organiser, an intellectual, and a teacher, from her early experiences in depression-era Harlem to the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

"A magnificent and timely reminder that Baker's visionary voice, eloquent democratic silences, and unflinching faith in the power of ordinary people are much needed guides for the twenty-first century as well."
(Lani Guinier, Harvard University.)
