Abstract:

A work of biography and social history, this book illuminates a lost chapter in American and women's history: how Jessie Daniel Ames and the campaign against lynching that she led, fused the causes of social feminism and racial justice in the south during the 1920s and 1930s. Many southern suffragists shared the dominant prejudices of their time: many white suffragists gained support by claiming that the women's vote would help maintain social control by the white, native middle class. Unlike many similar groups, the Association of Southern Women for the Prevention of Lynching worked with the evangelical church and interracial initiatives of Black women.
