Abstract:

Anita Hill's testimony at the Senate confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas provided the most dramatic representation of the emergence of a distinctive black woman's voice in American public life. Race, Gender, and Power in America is a powerful collection of essays that examines the context and consequences of the hearings, charting the unfamiliar terrain of race and gender representation. Edited by Hill and Emma Coleman Jordan, Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, and including the first published essay on the episode written by Hill herself, these essays identify and analyze the emergence of gender discontent among African Americans.
