Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and the Politics of Empowerment, by Patricia Hill Collins [50BPT]
Today's entry comes from Cheryl. Thanks Cheryl!
Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and the Politics of Empowerment by Patricia Hill Collins
This book comes to mind for me every time I talk to a white feminist who's just discovered this Great New Thing! called "intersectionality." Collins was talking about it nearly two decades ago, and the sources she cites and the struggles she describes make it clear that women of color have been navigating this space for a long, long time.
