Mary Helen Washington described Coopers work as the most precise, forceful, well-argued statement of black feminist thought to come out of the nineteenth century. This is the first collection of all of Coopers major writings, including many never before published. It includes all of the essays from her famous book, A Voice from the South, in addition to many other essays and letters accessible only in archives until now. The organization of this important new collection lends itself to a clearer understanding of the major themes and contributions of Coopers thought, her development as a thinker and writer, and the critiques and controversies surrounding her work. Lemert and Bhan introduce Cooper as an activist, settlement founder, school teacher, college president, linguist, and scholar--a life that paralleled the prodigious accomplishments of W.E.B. Du Bois in so many ways.
