By Cheryl Mullenbach. Full title - Double Victory: How African American Women Broke Race and Gender Barriers to help Win World War II is an account of the lesser-known contributions of African-American women during World War II reveals how they helped lay the foundations for the Civil Rights Movement by challenging racial and gender barriers at home and abroad. Double Victory tells the stories of African American women who did extraordinary things to help their country. In these pages young readers meet a range of remarkable women: war workers, political activists, military women, volunteers, and entertainers. Some, such as Mary McLeod Bethune and Lena Horne, were celebrated in their lifetimes and are well known today. But many others fought discrimination at home and abroad in order to contribute to the war effort yet were overlooked during those years and forgotten by later generations.

Double Victory recovers the stories of these courageous women, such as Hazel Dixon Payne, the only woman to serve on the remote Alaska-Canadian Highway; Deverne Calloway, a Red Cross worker who led a protest at an army base in India; and Betty Murphy Phillips, the only black female overseas war correspondent. Offering a new and diverse perspective on the war and including source notes and a bibliography, Double Victory is an invaluable addition and gift to any lover of history and visionaries working today for positive change. Chicago Review Press (2013), English, Age Range: 12+, Grade Level: 7+, Hardcover: 272 pages.
