In A Voice from the South, Cooper addresses some major African-American issues from the standpoint of the late nineteenth century. The first half of the book concerns the essential role of education for African American women and the last part argues that education, especially a practical education, of many African Americans is the best investment for the economy. She attacks segregation for damaging the whole nation, takes a stand against the dangers of agnosticism, and argues for the right to vote of all women. In the second half of the book Cooper discusses a number of authors and their representations of African Americans and challenges writers to provide a successful portrayal of individuals from the post-Civil War era

A voice of the South by Anna Julia Cooper( )

1 edition published in 1892 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In A Voice from the South (1892), Cooper engages a variety of issues ranging from women's rights to racial progress, from segregation to literary criticism. The first half of her book concentrates largely on the education of African American women. Women, Cooper argues, are essential to "the regeneration and progress of a race." Accordingly, women should be brought fully into the education process. She criticizes the Episcopal Church for neglecting the education of African American women and argues that this explains why the Church has made little headway in enlightening large numbers of African Americans. Cooper expands her examination to include all women and the right to vote. She explains that female representation will result in "the supremacy of moral forces of reason and justice and love in the government of the nation." Likewise, Cooper argues that the institution of segregation damages the nation. She claims that it not only encourages poor manners, but it has an adverse effect on American intellectual and artistic life. In the second half of her book, Cooper discusses a number of authors and their representations of African Americans. Among others, she discusses Harriet Beecher Stowe, Albion Tourgée, George Washington Cable, William Dean Howells, and Maurice Thompson. Cooper reaches the conclusion that an accurate depiction of African Americans has yet to be written, and she calls for an African American author to take up this challenge: "What I hope to see before I die is a black man honestly and appreciatively portraying both the Negro as he is, and the white man, occasionally, as seen from the Negro's standpoint." Cooper discusses the African American role in the economy for the remainder of her book. She views African American poverty as the heritage of slavery, but notes that despite their disadvantaged start and the active opposition to African American economic growth, there has been significant progress in this area. Cooper considers education to be the best investment for African American prosperity. She cites the African Methodist Church as making great headway with its institutions of learning. Cooper believes that students should receive practical education that will enable them to earn a living, and only those students who show special aptitude or desire should be educated more thoroughly in the humanities.
The status of woman in America by Anna J Cooper( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A Voice from the South by Anna J Cooper( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A cornerstone of black feminist and political theory, this collection of essays focuses on racial progress and women's rights. A Voice from the South, written in 1892, is regarded as the first statement of black feminism. Despite their imprint of nineteenth-century social thought, these essays possess an urgent, modern tone, characterized by an emphasis on debate and a scintillating wit. Topics include the importance of women's education as well as African Americans' economic roles and their literary representation. A noted member of Washington, D. C.'s African American community, Anna Julia Cooper (1858 - 1964) rose to prominence as a leading scholar, educator, and activist at the end of the nineteenth century. Born into slavery, she was the fourth African American woman to earn a doctoral degree, receiving a PhD in history from the University of Paris-Sorbonne in 1924. This edition includes an informative Introduction to Cooper's life and work by Janet Neary
The Herculean task : Anna Julia Cooper and Mary Church Terrell's struggle to establish the black woman's voice in the American feminist and civil rights movements by Cynthia J Booth( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The works of African-American women in both the feminist and civil rights movements have been virtually ignored by academics. Anna Julia Cooper and Mary Church Terrell, two of the most visible black women in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, worked diligently in both movements, yet have received little scholarly interest. Both women used unique rhetorical styles in their speeches and were highly effective as motivators of both women and blacks. Their work deserves attention due to its effectiveness in establishing the voice and hence sharing the distinctive experiences of the American black woman."--Abstract
