Black Women and Politics in New York City Summary


Black Women and Politics in New York City by Julie A. Gallagher

Julie A. Gallagher documents six decades of politically active black women in New York City who waged struggles for justice, rights, and equality not through grassroots activism but through formal politics. In tracing the paths of black women activists from women's clubs and civic organizations to national politics--including appointments to presidential commissions, congressional offices, and even a presidential candidacy--Gallagher also articulates the vision of politics the women developed and its influence on the Democratic party and its policies. Deftly examining how race, gender, and the structure of the state itself shape outcomes, she exposes the layers of power and discrimination at work in all sectors of U.S. society.

Black Women and Politics in New York City Reviews


"Through a strong narrative of African American women's political activism in New York City, Julie A. Gallagher fills a major gap in the historical literature. In particular, Gallagher's focus on party politics gives us a fresh perspective. A major contribution in the fields of African American, women's, and political history."--Victoria W. Wolcott, author of Remaking Respectability: African-American Women in Interwar Detroit
"Gallagher has written an insightful, in-depth narrative and analysis of the interconnectedness of race and gender discrimination in US society. . . . an important contribution to both black women's history and New York State's political history. Highly recommended."--Choice

"An important contribution to the scholarship by illuminating the powerful ways African American women challenged the racialized and gender-based discrimination that characterized New York City politics throughout the 20th century and beyond."--The Journal of African American History
