Mary McLeod Bethune, advisor to US presidents and advocate of women's rights wrote for the "Chicago Defender" from the late 1940s until her death in the mid 1950s and this volume divides her work into issue-orientated catagories. Before writing her weekly public affairs column, Mary McLeod Bethune had seen America from Reconstruction to the rise of the civil rights movement. She had stood down the Ku Klux Klan to lead people to the polls after the ratification of the Women's Suffrage Amendment in 1920. She advised US presidents, founded a college in the deep south and an organization for women in Washington DC. In her time at the "Chicago Defender" she wrote over 300,000 words. This volume hopes to interest those working in the history of journalism, women's studies, black studies and social issues.
