The Afro-American Woman: Images and Struggles - Ed. Sharon Harley and Rosalyn Terborg-Penn
Civil rights activists, educators, writers, artists, and workers--these are the women of The Afro-American Woman: Struggles and Images, an excellent anthology of essays that provides a more accurate image of the Black woman and her place in history and in the cultural development of our society. The Afro-American Woman includes essays that highlight historical experiences common to Black women. The anthology also features essays that focus on early activists Anna J. Cooper, Nannie Burroughs, and Charlotta A. Bass. This book is a long out-of-print, valuable reference source. It was the first written by Black academics which analyzed these women’s experiences from a historical and Black nationalist perspective. 1978*. 137 pgs. Paperback.
Also available on Kindle e-book for $7.99.
