Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective
Reflections on the legacy and impact of radical black feminists of the 1960s on today's feminist and anti-racist movements
Praise for From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation:

“This brilliant book is the best analysis we have of the #BlackLivesMatter moment of the long struggle for freedom in America. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor has emerged as the most sophisticated and courageous radical intellectual of her generation.” —Dr. Cornel West

"Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor's searching examination of the social, political, and economic dimensions of the prevailing racial order offers important context for understanding the necessity of the emerging movement for black liberation." —Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

The Combahee River Collective, a group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the anti-racist and women's liberation movements of the 1960s and '70s. In this collection of essays and interviews, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to black feminism and its impact on today's struggles.
