Description: At the turn of the twentieth century, when African Americans raced lynching, mob violence, segregation, and disenfranchisement, African American women stepped forward with a plan of organized resistance. Thus began a century of black women organizing on behalf of their race and themselves. Too Heavy a Load explores the century-long efforts of black women to define and explain themselves as well as race and gender issues to white and black men. This sweeping history highlights the persistent struggle of black women against racism, male chauvinism, and negative stereotypes; it also brings to light and celebrates early-twentieth-century African American women's unlauded support for women's rights, civil rights, and civil liberties.

Too Heavy a Load also explores how black women sought to hold their race and gender identity in balance while being pulled in different directions by the agendas of white women and black men. Finally, it tells the larger story of how Americans began the century measuring racial progress by the status of black women but gradually came to focus primarily on the status of black men -- the masculinization of America's racial consciousness.
