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.

  1. Just wanted to drop by to say that I am loving this series. As a high school English teacher, it's hard to come up with books and stories that aren't part of the traditional canon, and this series has given me a ton of ideas! Thanks! (and if you need ideas for other books for the series, I have lots of them! :-D )
