"One of the first books to show how Appalachian blacks -- like those in the Cotton Belt South and the Northern migrants -- successfully pitted their intellect against historical realities and contradiction, and won!"
-- William H. Turner, co-editor of Blacks in Appalachia
"Anecdotally rich. Memphis Tennessee Garrison: The Remarkable Story of a Black Appalachian Woman fills the gap in historical accounts of mining. Of particular interest is her work on the NAACP and her recollections of its less-remembered cultural mission in the black community -- organizing the Negro Artists Series -- as well as its political one."
