By Beverly Guy-Sheftall (Editor). In this groundbreaking collection of articles, Dr. Guy-Sheftall has taken us from the early 1830s to contemporary times. Only since the seventies have black women used the term 'feminism.' And, yet, it is that concept that she uses to bring into the same frame the ideas and analyses of Maria Stewart, Sojourner Truth, and Frances Harper of the early nineteenth century, and the work of women such as Audre Lourde, Barbara Smith, and bell hooks, who stand on the threshold of the twenty-first century. --from the epilogue by Johnnetta B. Cole, President, Spelman College. The New Press (1995), English, Paperback: 577 pages.


The indefatigable Beverly Guy-Sheftall has put together a breathtaking sweep of African American feminist thought in one indispensable volume. -- Elizabeth Spelman, Professor of Philosophy, Smith College


This anthology of African-American feminist thinking is an outstanding collection written by a pioneer of the modern black feminist movement. This is the first collection of black women's philosophy from the 1830s to modern times, revealing an intellectual tradition which is historically significant, revealing black women's struggles in this country since their arrival. -- Midwest Book Review


“The best interpretation of black women and race and sex that we have” (Women's Review of Books)

“A triumphant study.” (Publishers Weekly)


“The first historical study of the relationship in America between racism and sex.” (Kirkus Reviews)
