Black Feminism Anthology – France

1st anthology of Black Feminist Thought ever published in France.


“Why is there no equivalent to the black feminist movement in France, an ex-colonial power? These texts, by their vitality and their perspicacity, invite us to raise this question and to rethink the pretence of republican universalism–the blind spot of French feminism.”

Book Announcement, en Francais.

Uh, this is a trick question.  Just because European white feminists chose to marginalize and render invisible Black feminists does not been they do not exist. Fact is there has been a concerted and sustained effort by Black feminist (Black in a European context that may include other WOC) to organize, produce theory and work for social and political change.

Just so you know.
