"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."
"Rouse discusses Hope’s leadership and involvement in a wide array of other public activities, including inaugural meetings of the interracial and women’s club movements. This allows her to usher in persons such as Lucy Laney, Charlotte Hawkins Brown, Mary McLeod Bethune, Margaret Murray Washington, and a host of others active in such organizations as the Young Women’s Christian Association, the National Association of Colored Women, and the National Urban League. The explication of these varied and connected networks, especially among women, helps situate Hope’s life and work in a regional and national context."
