In the wake of the recent death of civil rights icon Gloria Richardson, who passed on July 15, a biography on her life by Professor Joseph R. Fitzgerald is taking on new meaning.

Many prominent and well-known figures greatly impacted the civil rights movement, but one of the most influential and unsung leaders of that period was Gloria Richardson.

As the leader of the Cambridge Nonviolent Action Committee (CNAC), a multifaceted liberation campaign formed to target segregation and racial inequality in Cambridge, Maryland, Richardson advocated for economic justice and tactics beyond nonviolent demonstrations. Her philosophies and strategies—including her belief that Black people had a right to self–defense—were adopted, often without credit, by a number of civil rights and Black power leaders and activists.

"The Struggle Is Eternal: Gloria Richardson and Black Liberation" explores the largely forgotten but deeply significant life of this central figure and her determination to improve the lives of Black people.
