520    "Reverend Addie Wyatt (1924-2012) was one of the most 
       influential African American female labor leaders in the 
       twentieth century. Wyatt lived in Chicago for most of her 
       life and while there became a nationally known civil 
       rights activist, ordained minister, and outspoken 
       feminist. She was the first female president of a local 
       chapter of the United Packinghouse Workers of America, 
       worked alongside Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. in 
       Alabama and during marches in Chicago, and Eleanor 
       Roosevelt appointed her to the Protective Labor 
       Legislation Committee of President Kennedy's Commission on
       the Status of Women. In this biography, Walker-McWilliams 
       tells the story of the reverend's commitment to social 
       justice, which fueled her activism and leadership in the 
       American labor movement, while also setting her life story
       in the sociohistorical climate in which Wyatt emerged. 
       Walker-McWilliams argues that what began for Wyatt as an 
       individual journey to break away from poverty became a 
       commitment to a collective struggle against economic, 
       racial, and gender inequalities and a lifetime of 
       organizing and activism. Based on oral histories, 
       interviews conducted with Wyatt's colleagues and families,
       Wyatt's collection of personal papers, and extensive 
       archival data, Walker-McWilliams illuminates the ways 
       Wyatt grew into the roles of activist and leader as a 
       result of personal experiences with poverty, racism, 
       sexism, and discrimination, and developed a spiritual 
       faith that refused to see these circumstances as immutable
       structural forces"--|cProvided by publisher.
