Beschreibung:

During her short life, Ruby Doris Smith Robinson became one of the most important leaders in the black struggle for equality. By age 24, Robinson's intelligence, brashness, and bravery had elevated her to a top leadership role in the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee(SNCC). Cynthia Griggs Fleming's beautifully written biography of this incredible woman demonstrates that Robinson's activism wasn't limited to racial equality: she was an equally eloquent and powerful voice for women's rights. Fleming provides new insights into the successes, failures, peculiar contradictions, and unique stresses of Robinson's life.
