Reader's Thoughts

Spicy T AKA Mr. Tea

A quick history of Ella Baker--activist and community organizer. The book wasn't very critical and wasn't so in-depth as to explain the nuances of certain stances taken by Baker. Ella was a fascinating and courageous person who had a very unassuming way of organizing: direct empowerment through direct action. Basically, she wanted to see everyone as leaders instead of a group of people following a select-few leaders. It was fast and informative--but I'm looking forward to reading more about her life from authors who dig deeper.Not a bad intro though.
