"She Took Justice The Black Woman,Law, And Power 1619 to 1969" by Gloria Browne-Marshall
She Took Justice: The Black Woman, Law, and Power - 1619 to 1969 proves that The Black Woman liberated herself. The book takes readers on a journey from Africa's invasion into the Colonial period and the Civil Rights Movement. From Queen Nzingha to Shirley Chisholm, The Black Woman reveals power. In She Took Justice, we see centuries of courage in the face of racial prejudice and gender oppression. We gain insight into American history through The Black Woman's fight against race laws, especially criminal injustice. She became an organizer, leader, activist, lawyer, and judge - a fighter in her own advancement. These engaging true stories show that the law was an enemy to The Black Woman for most of American history. Using perseverance, tenacity, intelligence, and faith, she turned the law into a weapon to combat discrimination, a prestigious occupation, and a platform from which she could lift others as she rose.
