Sometimes Farmgirls Become Revolutionaries is the story of an unsung civil rights organizer, Black Power activist, and barrier-breaking Black woman, Florence Louise Tate (1931-2014). Tate was close to the young leaders of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. She became a mentor, a mother-of-the-movement, and a target of J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Tate defied stereotypes of the 1960s, playing key roles in the lives and work of an astonishing number of high-profile leaders of the most influential social-change organizations and events of the 20th century. She also worked with numerous Black Nationalist leaders and Pan-African activists, US politicians, and members of the Congressional Black Caucus. She was close to Marion Barry and Jesse Jackson, serving both men as press secretary. Farmgirls is an engaging collage of Tate’s life, woven together from her journal entries, memories from people who knew her, and excerpts from her FBI files.
