This is a synthetic theoretical treatment of the contributions of African-American women to feminist thought. The author argues that black African-American women have a special perspective - what she lables the "outsider within" - on feminist issues that has produced black feminist thought. The book examines the historical and social contributions that have produced this perspective, and then looks at the contributions of black feminist thought to various feminist issues. The book contains quotes from a range of African-American women thinkers, some well-known, others rarely heard from. The book is aims to be intellectually rigorous, well-researched, and accessible to the general reader.
