Women, Race, & Class

Angela Y. Davis
A powerful study of the women's movement in the U.S. from abolitionist days to the present that demonstrates how it has always been hampered by the racist and classist biases of its leaders.

if you're ready to graduate from just holding intersectional complexity to doing justice along every axes of that intersection in due measure, then you should read these essays; that is, if you haven't already. i hate the shame that accompanies the canon when you're finally getting around to something that should be elemental. maybe i should let go of the shame. what's shameful is that if we're going under the assumption that this text is so widely read and familiar on such a scale then why are all our political spaces so totally bereft of its insights? people may grasp intersection, but there is a lack of the rigor to do the labor to strengthen the joists so that a liability is rendered into a gift. this is angela davis' gift.
