Princess of the Hither Isles: A Black Suffragist’s Story from the Jim Crow South by Adele Logan Alexander
“If you combine the pleasures of a seductive novel, discovering a real American heroine, and learning the multiracial history of this country that wasn’t in our textbooks, you will have an idea of the great gift that Adele Logan Alexander has given us in Princess of the Hither Isles. By writing about her own grandmother, she helps us discover our own country.”—Gloria Steinem

Elizabeth and Hazel: Two Women of Little Rock by David Margolick
“The iconic image of Elizabeth and Hazel at age fifteen showed us the terrible burden that nine young Americans had to shoulder to claim our nation’s promise of equal opportunity. The pain it caused was deeply personal. David Margolick now tells us the amazing story of how Elizabeth and Hazel, as adults, struggled to find each other across the racial divide and in so doing, end their pain and find a measure of peace. We all need to know about Elizabeth and Hazel.”—President Bill Clinton
