Abstract

In this article I explore how African American women asserted their political power in early twentieth-century Atlanta by investigating their participation and leadership in Atlanta's anti-tuberculosis movement. Despite the reigning political system and culture of white supremacy, African American women created a sphere in which they could claim political power both as leaders of their community and as mediators between the white power structure and the black community.
