The "Undisputed Dignity" of Anna Julia Cooper

Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Anna Julia Cooper, the great scholar and leader. She lived to be 105 years old.
"Only the BLACK WOMAN can say, ‘when and where I enter, in the quiet, undisputed dignity of my womanhood, without violence and without suing or special patronage, then and there the whole Negro race enters with me.'" --Anna Julia Cooper (1858-1964)
