About the Author

Utz McKnight is Chair of the Department of Gender and Race Studies, and Professor of Political Science, at the University of Alabama.


"It's rare to read a book that both recovers a brilliant political thinker who has long been neglected, and is filled with luminous insights about contemporary racial politics, but Utz McKnight has achieved just this. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time."
Alex Zamalin, University of Detroit-Mercy

"Utz McKnight brings to light Frances Ellen Watkins Harper as a visionary. Read this book to discover the incomparable life and penetrating thought of one of the nineteenth century's most important public intellectuals. Absorb its lessons because, as McKnight so elegantly shows, Harper's aspirations for our democracy remain necessary and timeless."
Martha S. Jones, Johns Hopkins University
