“A highly readable and engaging work of firmly constructed history.” -Kirkus Reviews #AskaSuffragist

 

The first review of Ask a Suffragist: Stories and Wisdom from America’s First Feminists has been published! The professional book reviewers at Kirkus Reviews described Ask a Suffragist as “a highly readable and engaging work of firmly constructed history.” The reviewers noted that Ask a Suffragist “skillfully tells the stories of lesser-known activists” and “gives full attention to the efforts of black women advocating for both suffrage and equality.”

The reviewers seemed surprised—but also delighted—by my casual, modern writing style. (This is a book by a modern activist intended to inspire other modern activists, not a stuffy history book intended to torture college students.)
