Descripción

"In an unwavering voice Nellie offers a humanistic approach to a society wrought with injustice. She unleashes memories of both her fight for equal pay for women in the late 1930s, and her ground-vreaking election as the first black woman appointed to office in Minneapolis. A feisty individual, she describes her instrumental role in organizing statewide hotel and restaurant union.In this engaging oral history, Nellie's tough, candid perspective resonates as she recounts nearly a century of politics shaped by her insatiable pursuit to establish equality for all." This book has 234 pages. The book is a SIGNED copy from the author, David Brauer. N° de ref. de la librería 039183

Sinopsis:

Book by Johnson Nellie Stone

Reseña del editor:

Johnson got her start as an activist at age 13 distributing Non-Partisan League literature on horseback. A member of the only black family in a Minnesota community settled largely by Scandinavian and Irish immigrants, her politics were shaped both by the African American newspapers that arrived in the mail and profoundly by her experiences growing up on the family farm. The message of her autobiography (told to Minnesota political journalist David Brauer) is this: "You don't have to be Superman or Superwoman to accomplish things. You can be a regular person just like everyone else." Still, the story related by the seamstress, social activist, labor organizer, and third-generation feminist overflows with the everyday heroics of a life spent pursuing equality for all.
