Acclaim for Mighty Justice

Library Journal

Starred Review

"This superb work should ensure that Roundtree receives the recognition she richly deserves." 


"Thoughtful and highly inspiring, this book, co-authored by McCabe, is not only a moving memoir; it is also an important contribution to the history of civil rights in America . . . . An eloquently told story that should make an impact."

Publishers Weekly

"This eye-opening, accessible book documents the life of a trailblazing human rights advocate." 

Association of Black Women Historians

"An amazing story that humanizes the raw emotions of thousands of early twentieth-century achievers  . . . living the dreams of the entire African American community"

"Best Books" Title

January 2020

"The . . . arc of [Dovey Roundtree's] life pulses through this exquisite and essential memoir as she battles her way out of the segregated South and into some of the highest courts of the land, carving 'a way out of  no way.'"

"A gripping read. From the first few pages to the last, the reader is drawn in by the courage and perseverance of a remarkable woman . . . . McCabe's narrative skills pull one in as seductively as a novel."

-- Novelist Patricia O'Brien
