About This Item

Pompano Beach, FL: Exposition Press, (1985). First edition. Written by an educator, administrator and past president of the PW YWCA, this history of the independent Young Womens Christian Association of Washington DC founded by and for black women chronicles its struggles with the all-white National Capital YWCA at the height of the civil rights movement in the 1960s. INSCRIBED BY RADCLIFFE on front endpaper, "To Helen,/ The sweetest fruit on/ the tree of life is friendship./ Love-/ Florence J. Radcliffe/ 27 January 1987." Fine in very good or better dust jacket with light rubbing and showing a few small creases, nicks, and tears. To this day and "in keeping with its mission, Phyllis Wheatley is the only YWCA in [DC] providing affordable housing to women regardless of race, creed or color [and serving] many women in transition" as well as its surrounding community. Scarce, especially so in dust jacket.
