    • I was 16 years and had just arrived from Puerto Rico, when my uncle had a visitor. A very charismatic young black woman, who was living with an artist painter. Her name was Joanne Clark. My uncle introduced me and was proud to tell me that Joan had just published a chapter on motherhood in a compilation about Black Women. The woman on the cover of the book had a large smooth afro and so did Joanne Clark. The afro look was at the edge of everything. It was Hip, cool, radical, of self realization [...]


    • I found this book of all places at Walmart. Published in 1970, The Black Woman is an anthology of poetry, short stories, but mainly essays that are still relevant today, all written by African-American women. The material in this book was published in various magazines and journals during the late 1960s. Reading this book I saw how so little has really changed in the mindset of Americans both black and white. The essays which are the majority talk about the conflict between black men and women b [...]


    • I picked up this book at the right time. With all that is happening in the world, Black women need affirmation. This book is still relevant today. It's so brilliant, even the preface hit hard. I can see myself re-reading and referencing some of these essays in the future.


    • the voices comes from northern writers, southern writers simply beautiful and strong and passionate awesome and Even though many new books on women in the Civil Rights and Black Power movements are now available, Cade's anthology is an excellent collection of contemporary documents covering issues such as the sexism of welfare, the role of women in the Revolution and the rights Although some of the materials may seem "dated" to younger readers, these are authentic "back in the day" voices of Bla [...]



    • My spirit guide. The end. Black women, race, class, feminism, revolution, love, sex, education, poetry, essays, stories. Life. Everything.



    • An excellent anthology. I am interested in reading about both the womanist movement and Black Panthers and this book does not disappoint.Is this book radical? I would say so. I found myself agreeing and disagreeing at various points. But overall I think this book made me feel like a group of fearless black women looked at sexism and racism eye to eye. I admired their groundbreaking writing for making me proud to be black and female and powerful.


    • A great survey of different styles/viewpoints of black women considering their role in the Black Revolution and in American society. Really drove home that there isn't a simple "black woman's" view, but that each voice is a personal, lived response to a world that appears strikingly the same no matter who is looking at it.


    • The more things change, the more they stay the same relevant even today, and interesting to read and note how our language has evolved. There are essays on intersectionality and fragile masculinity before these terms were coined. Bambara' pieces and the essay by Grace Lee Boggs were, for me, the strongest contributions. An excellent book for anyone in the business of getting woke.


    • Major Field Prep: 67/133This landmark anthology of black women's writing and black feminist writing published in 1970 was in reaction to the abundance of anthologies of black radical thought and literature that largely excluded women writers and female perspectives, particularly Baraka and Neal's Black Fire. This text catalyzes and foretells of the rise of black women writers in the next two decades. It includes fiction, poetry, literary analysis, political critique, and critical essays, many ai [...]


    • Published in 1970, this book delivers a powerful voice for the issues of black women that were invisible in major media. It is among the first books published to a wide audience on black feminist issues and ideology.


    • Nah, kalo ini tentang penulis-penulis perempuan kulit hitam sekitar tahun 70-an dan 80-an mungkin. Ada Alice Walker, Nikki Giovanni, dsb. Ide-ide terkait feminisme mulai muncul. Ada 2 cerpen yang mulai menunjukkan kembali ajaran Marcus Garvey untuk kembali ke Afrika


    • A nice mix of literary fiction punctuated by a hard-hitting set of essays. TCB's "On the Issue of Roles" and Pat Robinson's "A Historical and Critical Essay for Black Women in the Cities" are simply brilliant.


    • I'm so glad I discovered this book. It's truly a womanist literary work. I love the discussions of the roles of black women, black men and the black family. I spent this past year reading works like this that center the needs of black women.I plan to re-read many of these essays.
