Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

As she grew up and entered academia, Collins (sociology, U. of Maryland-College Park) gradually found herself silenced as an African-American, working class woman. This study represents one stage of regaining her voice; the first edition appeared during the middle 1980s, and the 2000 second edition is reprinted here. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In Black Feminist Thought, originally published in 1990, Patricia Hill Collins explores the words and ideas of black feminist intellectuals and writers. She provides an interpretive framework for the work of a range of prominent thinkers and draws from fiction, poetry, music and oral history, to provide a superbly crafted and revolutionary book that gave the first synthetic overview of black feminist thought and its canon.

Synopsis:

In spite of the double burden of racial and gender discrimination, African-American women have developed a rich intellectual tradition that is not widely known. In Black Feminist Thought, originally published in 1990, Patricia Hill Collins set out to explore the words and ideas of Black feminist intellectuals and writers, both within the academy and without. Here Collins provides an interpretive framework for the work of such prominent Black feminist thinkers as Angela Davis, bell hooks, Alice Walker, and Audre Lorde. Drawing from fiction, poetry, music and oral history, the result is a superbly crafted and revolutionary book that provided the first synthetic overview of Black feminist thought and its canon.
