“Impressive and necessary . . . [and] every chapter merits its own attention.”--Women’s Review of Books
“This volume promotes study of a vital fiber in the tapestry of US history...Highly recommended”--Choice
“Offers a compelling exploration of black women’s diverse intellectual labors and contributions.”--Journal of Southern History
“A wonderful guide for activists and lay historians interested in understanding the longer trajectory of black women’s work as thinkers and doers in the world.”--Journal of American History
"This superb and ambitious collection of essays showcases the contributions of black women to the history of ideas, recognizing that their work is generally excluded from intellectual histories. Each essay is thoroughly researched, cogently argued, and well written, building upon the pioneering work of black feminist artists, activists, and scholars who have labored to establish the field of black women's intellectual history."--Valerie Smith, Princeton University
