“Watts highlights the gains [the Black Cabinet’s] efforts secured. . . But she’s at her best when she gives a frank accounting of the barriers the Black Cabinet encountered. . . [A] thoughtful book. . . Not a comforting story to tell. But it is a necessary one.”—Kevin Boyle, New York Times

“Meticulously researched and elegantly written, “The Black Cabinet” is sprawling and epic . . .”—Joseph P. Williams, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“A well-researched, urgent, and necessary history of black folks during the New Deal that excavates the too often ignored history of black female genius behind racial progress.”―Michael Eric Dyson, New York Times bestselling author

“A unique and enlightening portrait . . . [The Black Cabinet] is a groundbreaking reappraisal of an unheralded chapter in the battle for civil rights.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
