""Toward a Tenderer Humanity and a Nobler Womanhood" explores the complexities of the ideologies and actions behind the slogan 'lifting as we climb.'

Knupfer's study describes how middle-class African American women in Chicago used their clubs to respond to both the social welfare needs of a quickly expanding segregated community and their own intellectual and social growth".--Elizabeth Higginbotham, University of Memphis. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
