Killing the black body :race, reproduction, and the meaning of liberty

Killing the black body :race, reproduction, and the meaning of liberty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a no-holds-barred response to the liberal and conservative retreat from an assertive, activist, and socially transformative civil rights agenda of recent years--using a black feminist lens and the issue of the impact of recent legislation, social policy, and welfare "reform" on black women's--especially poor black women's--control over their bodies' autonomy and their freedom to bear and raise children with respect and dignity in a society whose white mainstream is determined to demonize, even criminalize their lives. It gives its readers a cogent legal and historical argument for a radically new , and socially transformative, definition of "liberty" and "equality" for the American polity from a black feminist perspective.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [313]-357) and index.
