Drawing upon an impressive range of archival sources deposited at historically black colleges, and upon interviews and oral histories, Smith's case studies of the work of black midwives, public health nurses, and sorority women support her argument that black women played a key role in black health reform for much of this century. -Bulletin of the History of Medicine. Susan L. Smith has written the definitive book on the history of black women's public health in the United States! A must-read for those interested in American history, health care and women's studies.

I am a health activist and I had NO idea about events chronicled in this informative book. Interesting read about health activism in the first half of the 20th century in the South. Well documented and a must read for feminists. I think the writer had some difficulty getting sources to focus on women's activism in the South, as opposed to activism from men and women; a lot of this covers the activities of men, and it was a very short book. What she does cover is convincing: women essentially filled in the spaces neglected by government health programs.
