Black Foremothers is a much needed book written about the lives of three important black women: Ellen Craft, Ida B. Wells and Mary Church Terrell. The author, Dorothy Sterling, is to be commended for her ability to piece together the lives of these women and present them in such an interesting manner. In the foreword, Margaret Walker states that the author is highly qualified to write biographies of black women because of her intense study of American black people for at least twenty-five years.
