Cover for HOLSAERT: Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC. Click for larger imageOn November 9, 2010, The Root published Charles Cobb’s review of Hands on the Freedom Plow: Personal Accounts by Women in SNCC.

“Women are almost invisible in civil rights storytelling, and hardly present in the civil rights canon. What they did and who they were in the Southern freedom movement of the 1960s remains barely understood. Hands on the Freedom Plow …  is long overdue and should help put an end to the belief that supporting male leaders was the principal role of women in the civil rights movement.”
