Ella Baker Freedom Bound by Joanne Grant (review)

by Edward O. Frantz
Southern Cultures, Vol. 6, No. 2: Summer 2000

John Wiley and Sons, 1998

Until this biography, students had to be content with only morsels of information from other publications about civil-rights activist Ella Baker, but Joanne Grant’s narrative traces Baker’s combative spirit back to the legacy of her grandparents, who were former slaves, and stresses a continuity of resistance within the African American community.
