"This is an excellent example of womanist theological studies. Ross cogently argues the moral logic and religious convictions of seven African American women who played decisive roles in the Civil Rights Movement. Ross' lucid cognitive maps offer important and long overdue assessments of each woman's moral agency and the milieu in which she worked as a doer-of-justice. The force with which Ross clarifies concretely the race, sex, class indignities as they arise in the context of the Civil Rights Movement is of utmost importance. On the whole, a much needed testimony."

"By examining the lives and faith of key Black women leaders, Rosetta Ross reminds us that Black women have never been afraid to step out in faith and to step up to the challenge a moral moment presents and to change things."
