Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of Empowerment, Patricia Hill Collins, 1990, United States, NONFICTION

"In her introduction, Patricia Hill Collins states that her work is informed by the totality of her experience as the daughter of working-class parents, her education as a sociologist and educator, and her daily "non-scholarly activities" as wife, mother, community activist, sister, and friend. Black Feminist Thought is the first history and analysis of "Black women's ideas" told in a voice that is "both individual and collective, personal and political, one reflecting the intersection of my unique biography with the larger meaning of my historical times."..."

(J.L., p, 327)

I found this book incredibly enabling and helpful to me in rethinking feminist texts I have read and other aspects of my life, especially the chapter on epistemology
