Major events like the civil rights movement and women’s movement would not have been possible without the ideas and efforts of Black women.
Maria Stewart (1803-1879) was the first American woman, Black or white, to speak in front of a mixed crowd of men and women. Stewart’s revolutionary claim that women are an integral part to the liberation of Black people was a direct challenge to patriarchy and hegemony and preceded many known Black thinkers such as Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth. Read more about her life and discourse in Marilyn Richardson’s Maria W. Stewart: America’s First Black Woman Political Writer.
Ella Baker (1903-1986) was a radical and an organizer, a behind-the-scenes force who propelled the civil rights movement and a prominent member of the NAACP.
bell hooks (1952-) is a writer, scholar, feminist, social critic and a venerable force leading the Black feminist struggle against racism, sexism, capitalism, patriarchy and imperialism. In Ain’t I A Woman, a work that is a classic in the feminist and Black liberation canon, bell hooks chronicles Black women’s history in America from slavery to the 1970s. hooks has written a number of books exploring the systems of oppression that perpetuate racial inequality and offer transgressive solutions to end these issues. Recently, hooks joined political commentator Melissa Harris-Perry in conversation at The New School, where hooks is currently a scholar-in-residence.
Angela Davis (1944-) is the embodiment of radical Black female thought, involved with the Communist Party and associated with the Black Panther Party during the 1960s. She is a scholar, activist, author, and two-time Communist Party vice presidential nominee. In Woman, Race, and Class she analyzes events that have shaped Black women’s experiences in America and uses them to illustrate how multiple oppressive forces impacted the women’s life choices and provides one of the earliest critical examinations to the women’s suffrage movement and feminism.
Patricia Hill Collins (1948-) is a sociologist best known for her work “Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and the Politics of Empowerment,” in which she details how race, class, gender, sexuality and nation intersect to have compounding effects on people with several marginalized identities.
Amy Jacques Garvey (1895-1973) was the force behind Marcus Garvey and a leader in the Pan-African/Black Nationalist Movement. She was a journalist, feminist, and activist, who assumed several important roles within United Negro Improvement Association that was active during the 1920s.
Nikki Giovanni (1943-) is one of the most praised and accomplished poets of her generation. Her body of work tells us what it was like for a strong-willed, militaristic Black nationalist female to come of age during a ’60s revolutionary movement that didn’t make much room for women. Giovanni’s work was an important catalyst for Black women to become actively involved in revolutionary action.
