Description
Summary:In her collection of linked essays, Jerkins takes on perhaps one of the most provocative contemporary topics: What does it mean to "be" - to live as, to exist as - a black woman today? Doubly disenfranchised by race and gender, often deprived of a place within the mostly white mainstream feminist movement, black women are objectified, silenced, and marginalized with devastating consequences, in ways both obvious and subtle, that are rarely acknowledged in our country's larger discussion about inequality. Jerkins exposes the social, cultural, and historical story of black female oppression that influences the black community as well as the white male-dominated world at large.
