I was especially eager to read this book because I’ve known Pat Bell-Scott for decades — since we were members in the National Association for Women in Education. She also is the editor of Life Notes: Personal Writings of Contemporary Black Women, in which I had the opportunity to contribute a chapter.

As I read this book about the friendship of Eleanor Roosevelt and Pauli Murray, my admiration for Roosevelt deepened and Murray became my hero. The book revealed new details about Roosevelt’s courage and her fight for civil rights and social justice, and showed how Murray lived many lifetimes in her time with us. She showed us that the way may not be smooth, but it is our duty to keep pushing forward, to reach for the brass ring, and to challenge injustice wherever it occurs and from whomever it emanates.

This review article discusses Rosalind Rosenberg’s study of Pauli Murray’s pivotal role in enhancing the civil rights of African Americans and American women.

This book is contemporary in that it plots the path from overt racial segregation to what our country is experiencing today around diversity and inclusion. Bell-Scott tells us that Murray’s “first fiery essay” was “Who Is to Blame for Disappearance of Gaines?”

Lloyd Lionel Gaines was am African American who was denied admittance to the University of Missouri School of Law. It was speculated that he may have been murdered as a result of the Supreme Court decision that supported his case that the University could not deny this highly qualified applicant admission based on his race.

Murray’s essay could well define the current climate in which students are demanding the elimination of what they see as structural racism. After 55 years, the University of Missouri School of Law granted Lloyd Gaines an honorary degree. Is it any wonder that generation after generation of African Americans say they can’t wait?

Bell-Scott is a role model without peer for academics and others who have a book in them that needs to be written. She worked on this book for 20 years and the results demonstrate the time, energy, and love she devoted to this work. Truly, it is more than a book. It is a spiritual acclamation of a cross-section of the lives of two women who were most distinct in their culture and context, yet had a similar strength of purpose based on their values of equity and justice.

James Hope, born 8 March, 1808, is son of Rear-Admiral Sir Geo. Hope, K.C.B., by his first wife. Lady Jemima Hope Johnstone, fifth daughter of James, third Earl of Hopetoun; brother-in-law of Sir Harry Verney, Bart.; and cousin of the present Rear-Admiral Henry Hope, C.B.

This officer entered the R.N. College 1 Aug. 1820; embarked about June, 1822; and, after serving in the West Indies and Mediterranean on board the Forte and Cambrian frigates, was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant 9 March, 1827. His next appointments were, 16 Sept. and 3 Oct. 1827, to the Maidstone 42, Capt. Wm. Skipsey, and Undaunted 46, Capt. Augustus Wm. Jas. Clifford, in the latter of which ships he escorted Lord Wm. Bentinck as Governor-General to India, and hrought home Major-General Bourke, late Lieut.-Governor of the Cape. He became, in Aug. 1829, Flag-Lieutenant to Lord Northesk, Commander-in-Chief at Plymouth; and, obtaining a second promotal commission 26 Feb. 1830, Capt. Hope was, from 13 July, 1833, until paid off in 1838, employed on the North America and West India station in command of the Racer 16. He acquired his present rank on 28 June in the latter year; and, since 13 Dec. 1844, has been Captain of the Firebrand steam-frigate, on the south-east coast of America. On 20 Nov. 1845, Capt. Hope enacted a conspicuous part in the battle of the Parana, where a hard day’s fighting resulted in the destruction, by the combined squadrons of England and France, of four heavy batteries belonging to General Rosas at Punta Obligado, also of a schooner-of-war carrying 6 guns, and of 24 vessels chained across the river. On that occasion, having volunteered, he gallantly pulled up in his boat and cut the chain which impeded the upward progress of the allies. At the close of the action he landed as Aide-de-Camp to Capt. Chas. Hotham, the Senior British officer, and assisted in giving the coup-de-grace to the defeat of the enemy, whose numbers originally consisted of 3500 men, in cavalry, infantry, and artillery, and whose batteries had mounted 22 pieces of ordnance.[1] As a reward for his conduct he was nominated a C.B. 3 April, 1846.

Capt. Hope is a Magistrate and Deputy-Lieutenant for co. Linlithgow. He married, 16 Aug. 1838, the Hon. Frederica Kinnaird, daughter of Charles, eighth Lord Kinnaird. Agents – Hallett and Robinson.
