"Rouse has given us not only an account of an inspiring life, but also an insightful view of black community life in the South, dating back to the beginning of the century."
From the turn of the century until her death in 1947, Lugenia Burns Hope worked to promote black equality—in Atlanta as the wife of John Hope, president of both Morehouse College and Atlanta University, and on a national level in her discussions with such influential leaders as W.E.B. Du Bois and Jessie Daniel Ames. Highlighting the life of the zealous reformer, Jacqueline Anne Rouse offers a portrait of a seemingly tireless woman who worked to build the future of her race.
