Book Description

A question previously posed in the abstract became real during the 2008 presidential election. Asked to make a choice, would an African American woman support a male African American candidate or a non-African American female candidate? If identity politics played a role in her decision, which identity would hold sway—female or African American?

Conflict: African American Women and the New Dilemma of Race and Gender Politics
Author Cindy Hooper weaves an intricate historical and contemporary perspective of the journey of African American women's critical influence in the United States political systems. Hooper's "Conflict: African American Women and the New Dilemma of Race and Gender Politics" takes a truthful and stark look at the struggles and triumphs of African American women in the United States. From addressing issues of gender bias, not only from White males but also from their African American counterparts, Hooper notes that African American women are a constant force in the shaping of the political system and seating local state and federal political officials. The latest and most prevalent power-play, Hooper notes is the instrumental vote cast by African American women in electing Barack Obama, the first African American President of the United States.

"Conflict: African American Women and the New Dilemma of Race and Gender Politics" tells the experiences of African American women as they pushed passed the women's suffrage as well as the civil rights movements. Conflict is segmented into reflections and scholarly research showing that Hooper is a storyteller and scholar in the best sense. Conflict is a must read and serves as a political literary game-changer where African American women herald the power of their "vote" in spite of racism and sexism. Hooper accomplishes the responsibility and privilege of telling the story of African American women's voting history, struggle and brilliance in a method that are narrative, empirical and supported in deep social science data.

In "Conflict -- African-American Women and the New Dilemma of Race and Gender Politics," Cindy Hooper immediately sweeps the reader into her carefully-constructed narrative. I read it twice because I was captivated and found it instructional and inspiring.
