In Her Words My Voice, Josephine Ruffin
Josephine Ruffin articulated our cause for freedom and equality through her eloquent newspaper The Women's Era. This journal was the national publication for the National Association of Negro Women. Today I go back to the 19th century as Mrs. Ruffin speaks to the first association meeting expressing the importance of black women to unite and organize for a common cause full citizenship rights and developing a national agenda for progress.
