Carl Bernstein, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter of Watergate Fame
“Dorothy Gilliam is a great reporter, a pioneer for all women in the news business, and African-American women particularly. Her story is about a time in American journalism where courage and brilliance were called for in the white-male bastions that were American newsrooms. It's a story that has been waiting a long time to be told.”
"Dorothy Butler Gilliam writes with an acute sense of the historical significance of her career and the changes she witnessed, and she forcefully demonstrates the continuing crisis regarding people of color in mainstream journalism. An important document of the struggles (and triumphs) faced by African-American journalists from the 1960s until today."
