"Gloria J. Browne-Marshall has the ability to capture and dissect issues in a consistently reliable relevant and thought-provoking manner." -Hon. Dorothy Bailey. "This timely book fills an important gap in our understanding the evolution of a 400 year American legal system which denies Black women their human rights. Gloria J. Browne-Marshall blends her skill as a civil rights lawyer, playwright and social historian to tell this much needed story." Herb Boyd, author of "Black Detroit"
