"With the publication of Black Feminist Thought, black feminism has moved to a new level. Her work sets a standard for the discussion of black women's lives, experiences, and thought that demands rigorous attention to the complexity of these experiences and an exploration of a multiplicity of responses." -- Women's Review of Books

One of the most important pieces of oppositional knowledge to emerge in 20th century sociology. The matrix of domination with the connection of race, class and gender (she adds other status markers later in her work) has completely changed how we sociologists and people in general view inequality

This book has been a godsend for me in my research on Black feminism. She categorizes each topic and makes it easy to follow her theories.

I strongly recommend this book if you are looking to understand feminism and how race, gender, class and sexuality are pivotal in understanding one's place and identity in the world...

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steven H. Propp TOP 100 REVIEWER on September 16, 2011
Format: Paperback
Patricia Hill Collins, (born 1948) is Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park, and the former head of the Department of African American Studies at the University of Cincinnati, as well as past President of the American Sociological Association Council. She has also written the books Black Sexual Politics: African Americans, Gender, and the New Racism, Another Kind of Public Education: Race, Schools, the Media, and Democratic Possibilities (Simmons College/Beacon Press Race, Education, and Democracy), Fighting Words: Black Women and the Search for Justice (Contradictions of Modernity), and Race, Class, & Gender: An Anthology.

She wrote in the Preface to this 1991 book, "This book reflects one stage in my ongoing struggle to regain my voice. Over the years I have tried to replace the external definitions of my life forwarded by dominant groups with my own self-defined standpoint... Finally, writing this book has convinced me of the need to reconcile subjectivity and objectivity in producing scholarship... I discovered that the both/and conceptual stance of Black feminist thought allowed me to be both objective and subjective, to possess both an Afrocentric and a feminist consciousness, and to be both a respectable scholar and an acceptable mother.
