In this compelling, well-written, definitive biography, Marcia Walker-McWilliams explores the life of African American activist Rev. Addie Wyatt. “Not always the loudest voice,” the author argues, “hers was the most persistent and consistent voice for greater inclusion and representation across the organized labor, civil rights, women’s rights, and religious movements of the twentieth century” (p. 217). Although the book never defines “religious movement,” it provides enough evi-dence of Wyatt’s multi-pronged activism to back up the author’s claim, and it draws from extensive archival research as well as oral histories.
