Part One: Re-writing History
Black womanhood : images, icons, and ideologies of the African body by Hood Museum of Art( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Explorations of contemporary art have focused on issues of identity and race for some time. Few, however, have sought to investigate these themes by juxtaposing historical and contemporary frameworks. Black Womanhood examines an especially charged icon - the black female body - and contemporary artists' interventions upon historical images of black women as exotic Others, erotic fantasies, and supermaternal Mammies." "This book presents icons of the black female body as seen from three separate but intersecting perspectives: the traditional African, the colonial, and the contemporary global. The display and contemplation of such iconic images addresses complex and often competing forces of self-presentation and the representation of others. Peeling back layers of social, cultural, and political realities, Black Womanhood explores how historic icons inform contemporary artistic responses to the black female body through an examination of themes such as beauty, fertility and sexuality, maternity, and women's roles and power in society."--Jacket
Daughters of the goddess, daughters of imperalism : African women struggle for culture, power, and democracy by Ifi Amadiume( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This seminal work charts a genealogy of class transformation in the 20th century. In its critique of developmentalism it proposes a genuine commitment to equity and gender democratization. Using the metaphor of a collectivist, humanist culture of traditional African matriarchal heritage, Professor Amadiume contrasts daughters of the Goddess with a corrupt and oppressive culture of imperialism that, she argues, is the heritage of contemporary elite-led women's organizations."--Jacket
The politics of memory : truth, healing, and social justice ( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The book is structured round the themes of social justice, the nature of conflict, judicial accountability and the role of truth commissions. Opening with Wole Soyinka's exploration of 'that burden of memory that a continent seeks to exorcise through the strategy of reparations', the first part of the book addresses questions of social justice as both ends and means of healing and reconciliation. The contributors go on to look at the nature and dynamics of conflict, and then consider judicial accountability and the role of truth commissions as approaches to healing and social justice. The book concludes with a chapter on the pursuit of justice as an underlying cause of civil wars in Africa and elsewhere."
