Product Details


One of the most significant contributions to early Black literature. -Jane Campbell, Belle Lettres

“This edition of Iola Leroy, with Hazel Carby’s introduction, is required reading.” -Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“A moving rite of passage story, the ‘ordeal of suffering’ of an enlightened black girl growing up. . . . A superior book.” -Doris Grumbach, National Public Radio

“In an era full of extraordinary black women, Frances Watkins Harper . . . was one of the most extraordinary among them. If she had published nothing else, Iola Leroy would have been sufficient of her to claim a place among the intellectuals of her time.” -Nellie McKay, University of Wisconsin-Madison
