MN Reads: "Nellie Francis: Fighting for Racial Justice and Women's Equality in Minnesota"

Nellie Frances was another woman like a lot of women in Minnesota.

Quiet and self-effacing, but active in her community and her church, it's not surprising that the story of a Black woman on the front lines of women's suffrage and civil rights issue hasn't been told until now.

Nellie Francis: Fighting for Racial Justice and Women’s Equality in Minnesota by William D. Green is published by the University of Minnesota Press.
