Start your review of Black Women in White: Racial Conflict and Cooperation in the Nursing Profession, 1890-1950
This book should be required reading for every nurse and allies. It discusses the struggle for professional integration in education and employment during the period of 1890 to 1950. Hine, an historian, provides a readable narrative describing/analyzing a fascinating period in nursing history. Those interested in the issue of structural racism can learn much from this history of nursing. Nursing leaders during the period were unsung heroes and brilliant organizers. Highly recommended.
