Books: by Title: Uncrowned Queens:
African American Women Community Builders
of Western New York -- Volume II

In 1999, historians Dr. Peggy Brooks- Bertram and Dr. Barbara Seals Nevergold created the Uncrowned Queens project to celebrate the accomplishments of African American women community builders in Western New York.

With this second volume, the Uncrowned Queens project expands with a whole new collection of brilliant and accomplished women of color.

''Volume II of Uncrowned Queens: African American Women Community Builders of Western New York is a significant addition to the body of work documenting black women's community engagement and its relationship to the 19th and 20th Century struggles for human rights, civil rights, and women's rights. This groundbreaking work serves as a model for researchers in other states as regional histories documenting black women's contributions continue to evolve."
-- Gloria Dickinson, President Association for the Study of African American Life and History

"Documenting regional studies of the experiences and achievements of African American women begins to fill historic gaps in the role black women play in shaping their communities as well as their world. The Uncrowned Queens project helps to address this omission in the writing of history."
-- Levirn Hill, Editor Black American Colleges and Universities Author, History of the Underground Railroad in Howard County Maryland
