      Gateway to Equality: Black Women and the Struggle for Economic Justice in St. Louis

      In her new book, Gateway to Equality: Black Women and the Struggle for Economic Justice in St. Louis, Keona Ervin, University of Missouri–Columbia, investigates black working-class women’s struggle for economic justice from the rise of New Deal liberalism in the 1930s to the social upheavals of the 1960s. Ervin presents a stunning account of the ways in which black working-class women creatively fused racial and economic justice, shedding light on an unexplored aspect of community activism and illuminating the complexities of the overlapping civil rights and labor movements during the first half of the 20th century. Books will be available for purchase.
