This book on publisher and editor Lucile H. Bluford examines her journalistic writings on social, economic, and political issues; her strong opinionated views on African Americans and women; and whether there were consistent themes, biases, and assumptions in her stories that may have influenced news coverage in the Kansas City Call. It focuses on a selection of Bluford's news stories and editorials form 1968 to 1983 as examples of how she articulated a Black feminist standpoint advocating a Black liberation agenda--equal access to decent jobs, affordable health care and housing, and a better education in Kansas City, Missouri. Bluford's writings represented what the mainstream news ignored, exposing injustices and inequalities in the African American community and among feminists--back cover.
