Women of the Week

(1825 - 1911)
Poet, Writer, Orator, Enslavement Abolitionist, Women’s Suffrage Advocate, and Black Women’s Equality Activist

    As a poet, author, and lecturer, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper was a household name in the nineteenth century. She was an influential abolitionist, suffragist, and reformer that co-founded the National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs.          Harper traveled across the United States and Canada as a lecturer. After her first speech entitled, “The Elevation and Education of our People,” she was hired as a traveling orator for various organizations including the Maine Anti-Slavery Society and the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society. In addition to her anti-slavery lectures,           Harper was committed to the struggle for women’s rights and the temperance movement. She included her observations from her travels in her writings and began to publish novels, short stories, and poetry focused on issues of racism, feminism, and classism. In 1859, Harper published a short story in the Anglo-African Magazine called “The Two Offers.” This short story about women’s education was the first short story published by a Black woman.

(1852 - 1912)
Educator, Writer, and Racial Uplift and Women’s Equality Activist

Teacher, writer, and civil rights activist     Josephine Silone Yates was the only Black student in her class and the first to graduate from Rogers High School in Newport, Rhode Island in 1877. She was selected class valedictorian. Yates’s high school teachers encouraged her to attend university but instead she chose Rhode Island State Normal School, a teacher’s college. Again Yates graduated as the only African American student in 1879. For most of her life she wrote while teaching.        Yates penned newspaper and magazine articles often under the alias R.K. Potter. By 1900 she expanded her writing to include poetry. Yates was involved in clubs and organizations that fought for racial and social change.  She helped to organize the Kansas City Women’s League and was its first president in 1893. After the National Association of Colored Women (NACW) was established in 1896, Yates became one of its most dedicated supporters.
