By age 24, Robinson's intelligence, brashness, and bravery had elevated her to a top leadership role in the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee(SNCC). Cynthia Griggs Fleming's beautifully written biography of this incredible woman demonstrates that Robinson's activism wasn't limited to racial equality: she was an equally eloquent and powerful voice for women's rights. Fleming provides new insights into the successes, failures, peculiar contradictions, and unique stresses of Robinson's life.Hide synopsis

Ruby Doris was the forgotten superstar of the Southern Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, and this biography really does tell her story, give the reader the mood and the action of the times, the whole thing. It's ony factual flaw is that the author is too trusting when it comes to Jim Forman, Ruby Doris' predecessor as SNCC executive secretary. The author takes everything he says as gospel, but Jim was a real tale spinner not too concerrned with the truth (not to mention his long stay in mental hospitals). But on balance a really great read.
