Publisher's Summary

The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women's liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s.

In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to black feminism and its impact on today's struggles.

So important

In my lifetime this book will remain crucial and central to understanding how to combat multiple oppressions. Here, 'identity politics' is wrested out of the hands of the right-wing, and of pop liberal culture, and the white academy. None of them has a goal of collective liberation. The term and the whole CRC statement is placed back into an anaysis of racist capitalism, patriarchy, and imperialism. While I wish each person had a different narrator, the one narrator was excellent.
