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, Patricia Hill Collins explores the words and ideas of Black feminist intellectuals as well as those African-American women outside academe. She provides an interpretive framework for the work of such prominent Black feminist thinkers as Angela Davis, bell hooks, Alice Walker, and Audre Lorde. The result is a superbly crafted book that provides the first synthetic overview of Black feminist thought.

Review:

The author discusses how knowledge can foster African-American women's empowerment. In line with her own deepened understanding of the issues since the first edition, she emphasizes Black feminist thought's purpose in fostering both empowerment and conditions of social justice, provides a more complex analysis of oppression, and places greater stress on the connections between knowledge and power relations. New themes include the nation as a form of oppression, as well as a transnational, global dimension. Topics are organized under the headings of the social construction of Black feminist thought, core themes, and Black Feminism, knowledge, and power.

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" Patricia Hill Collins explores the words and ideas of black feminist intellectuals as well as those of African-American women outside academe. The result is a superbly crafted book that provides the first synthetic overview of black feminist thought. "Black Feminist Thought" , thoroughly documented and firmly grounded in sociological research, is interdisciplinary in approach. Set to become the definitive source on the subject, the book will be invaluable for anyone interested in the ongoing debates concerning the connections of race, class, and gender as major social systems.
