A Black Women's History of the United States
Author
Daina Ramey Berry
ISBN
9780807033555
A revealing history - at once sobering and empowering - showing Black women's expansive contributions since the 1600s. Spanning over 400 years, this book, written by two award-winning Black women historians, prioritizes all voices: from poor and working-class domestics to middle-class reform women to sex workers and female convicts. The book challenges historical stereotypes and myths but also offers a contemporary understanding of Black women in America, highlighting diverse voices and lives--from activists to athletes to rappers. Focusing on the unique and expansive experience of Black women, Berry and Gross reach far beyond a single narrative of Black women in America. The result is a book that centers race, gender and sexuality in the North, as well as the South, and in both rural and urban areas, to show that Black women are--and have always been--instrumental in shaping our history.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Daina Ramey Berry, Kali Nicole GrossPublisher: Beacon PressPublished: 02/04/2020ISBN: 9780807033555Pages: 288Weight: 1.19lbsSize: 9.10h x 6.10w x 1.20dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 11/15/2019 pg. 158Library Journal 01/01/2020 pg. 84Booklist 01/01/2020 pg. 21Shelf Awareness 02/14/2020
