"'Not a memoir, a biography, nor a reader. It is a reflection and a conversation. It is also a montage of forty years of documents, interviews and articles that provide useful lessons for social justice work' ... As an organizer, writer, publisher, scholar-activist and elected official, Barbara Smith has played key roles in multiple social justice movements, including Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. Her four decades of grassroots activism forged collaborations that introduced the idea that oppression must be fought on a variety of fronts simultaneously, including gender, race, class and sexuality. By combining ... historical documents with new unpublished interviews with fellow activists, this book uncovers the deep roots of today's 'identity politics' and 'intersectionality' and serves as an essential primer for practising solidarity and resistance"--Publisher's description

How we get free : black feminism and the Combahee River Collective by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor( file )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"In the last several years, Black feminism has reemerged as the analytical framework for the activist response to the oppression of trans women of color, the fight for reproductive rights, and, of course, the movement against police abuse and violence. The most visible organizations and activists connected to the Black Lives Matter movement speak openly about how Black feminism shapes their politics and strategies today. The interviews I have compiled in this book -- with the three authors of the Combahee River Collective Statement, Barbara Smith, Beverly Smith, and Demita Frazier, #BlackLivesMatter cofounder Alicia Garza, and historian and activist Barbara Ransby -- are an attempt to show how these politics remain historically vibrant and relevant to the struggles of today. As Demita Frazier says, the point of talking about Combahee is not to be nostalgic; rather, we talk about it because Black women are still not free." --
