Summary, etc.:
Born into slavery, Callie House helped create the Ex-Slave Mutual Relief, Bounty, and Pension Association in 1899 as a freedwoman. The organization, one of the first of its kind, campaigned for the reparations promised to African American freedmen by petitioning the government. Callie, their leader and voice of the movement, defied conventions of race, class, and gender with her ideas.
