Born into slavery in Georgia, Matthews was an African American social worker, author, newspaper woman, settlement house leader, and social activist who had moved from Georgia to New York City after the Civil War. With little education, Matthews worked as a domestic servant until she married. Writing under the pen name of Victoria Earle, Matthews became a journalist with T. Thomas Fortune’s New York Age and the Woman’s Era. She met Ida B. Wells when Wells came to New York to lecture against lynching. Matthews helped organize a testimonial for Wells and this event led to the development of the Women’s Loyal League of New York and Brooklyn. Matthews was among the clubwomen attending the conference that led to the founding of the National Federation of Afro-American Women, a forerunner of the National Association of Colored Women (NACW). She served as Chair of the Executive Board of the NACW. Victoria Earle Matthews was also well known as the founder and leader of a colored Social Settlement House in New York, known as the White Rose Mission, which provided young Black women with safe housing, education, and job skills to prepare them for useful work and successful lives.

From Philadelphia, Mossell was from a prominent free African American family of reformers, and married a physician. A professional journalist (Mrs. N. F. Mossell), she wrote a women’s column in T. Thomas Fortune’s newspaper, The New York Freeman. Her first article, entitled “Woman Suffrage,” published in 1885, encouraged women to read suffrage history and articles on women’s rights. Like Frances Harper, Mossell believed intemperance to be a great hindrance to the progress of the Black community. Her pro-suffrage arguments were similar to other African American suffragists of that era in calling for a Federal Amendment to enfranchise women, and she directed her arguments to the Black community through the Black press. As an affluent mother of two, as well as a professional writer, she could relate to middle-class views of housewives who were feminists.

McCurdy directed her suffrage argument to the African American community through the Black press, encouraging women to speak out during a period of heightened racial segregation. Living in Rome, Georgia, she carved out a career as a journalist and activist, encouraging Black women to use political means to solve social ills of the Black community. She was president of the local Black women’s temperance union in Rome, Georgia, and also edited the National Presbyterian, a temperance newspaper. Taking a position held by many women of the time, McCurdy held that the women of her race held a moral authority often lacking among men. She predicted that Black women would never allow their votes to be bought. McCurdy, like other Black women reformers, acknowledged the connection between the suffrage and temperance movements in the African American community.
