Theorizing Black Feminisms, a compilation of the latest work from Black women in the academy, is representative of some of the most crucial debates going on among Black feminists today. The contributors all work with the shared belief that Black women are not simply the victims of various oppressions, but are also visionary and pragmatic agents of change. Theorizing Black Feminisms includes essays from Black women scholars in a wide variety of disciplines such as literature, sociology, history, political science, anthropology, and art in order to explore the multidisciplinary possibilities of Black feminism.
