Book Description :

"This is one of those rare books that quickly became the standard work in its field. Professor White has done justice to the complexity of her subject."—Anne Firor Scott, Duke University Living with the dual burdens of racism and sexism, slave women in the plantation South assumed roles within the family and community that contrasted sharply with traditional female roles in the larger American society. This new edition of Ar'n't I a Woman? reviews and updates the scholarship on slave women and the slave family, exploring new ways of understanding the intersection of race and gender and comparing the myths that stereotyped female slaves with the realities of their lives. Above all, this groundbreaking study shows us how black women experienced freedom in the Reconstruction South — their heroic struggle to gain their rights, hold their families together, resist economic and sexual oppression, and maintain their sense of womanhood against all odds.

Book Description :

Evoking Sojourner Truth's legendary speech in defense of women's rights, Ain't I A Woman? catalogues the exploitation of working-class women of colour throughout American history, demonstrating how they were frequently betrayed by the people who ought to have been their allies - men of colour and white women. Interweaving theoretical reflections with both history and autobiography, hooks describes the racism inherent in many feminist narratives which fail to address issues of race and class and insists that the struggles to end sexism, classism and racism are inextricably intertwined.An important work, whose insights are no less applicable to contemporary struggles as to those which raged when it was written, Ain't I A Woman? has become a touchstone for students of gender studies, cultural criticism and social theory across the English-speaking world.-----------------------------------------------Few names resonate within contemporary cultural theory as much as that of bell hooks. A pioneering figure in post-modern approaches to gender, race and sexuality, her prodigious output is matched only by the scope of its concern - touching on everything from aesthetics to the politics of identity to the experience of love. These newly re-issued classics are as inspirational as ever.

Book Description :

In 1800, black voices began to rise against slavery. People like Gabriel Prosser and Nat Turner, attempted to launch slave rebellions against the system. Others, such as Maria Stewart and Frederick Douglass wrote books, pamphlets, and speeches calling for the abolition of slavery in the "land of the free." The voices of abolitionists, both black and white, helped end slavery in the Northern states during the early 19th century. But Southern plantation owners were unwilling to yield easily. The industrial revolution made the market for cotton better than ever. Inventor Eli Whitney's cotton gin could easily remove the seeds from cotton bolls a slow and tedious chore slaves had to do by hand and plantation owners were able to grow even more cotton with fewer hands. They were not about to give up their slaves without a fight. So--African Americans struggled to be free and remain free as slaveholders fought to keep the system alive and profitable. Let My People Go explores what slavery was like for men, women, and children in white homes and plantations, but it also shows how slaves created communities under bondage, how they fought back, and how they contributed to the system's decline. Even in rare "free" communities, the central goal of free African Americans, beyond their very survival as a people, was to fight for the complete abolition of slavery. This sense of brotherhood, of community, speeded slavery's demise and still guides African American history today. Let My People Go is a testament to the commitment and courage of those early communities.

Book Description :

In childhood, bell hooks was taught that "talking back" meant speaking as an equal to an authority figure and daring to disagree and/or have an opinion. In this collection of personal and theoretical essays, hooks reflects on her signature issues of racism and feminism, politics and pedagogy. Among her discoveries is that moving from silence into speech is for the oppressed, the colonized, the exploited, and those who stand and struggle side by side, a gesture of defiance that heals, making new life and new growth possible.
