Summary, etc.: "In this book, Sheena Harris contends that individual black, female leadership continues to be a blind spot in much scholarly historical literature, and Margaret Murray Washington, the third wife of Booker T. Washington, and her accomplishments have been overshadowed by the success of her husband. Harris discusses M. M. Washington's importance as an active clubwoman, educational reformer, and integral partner to her husband and his success with the Tuskegee Institute. Harris's biography of M. M. Washington lays the groundwork for understanding the rising educated class of black women and the early civil rights movement"--
