Editorial Reviews

Review

Living for the Revolution is a fabulous book with rich data and fine analysis. To date, nothing has been written that fills this particular historical vacuum. African American women’s participation in the feminist movement has only been told from the point of view of white feminists or in bits and pieces by others.”—Belinda Robnett, author of How Long? How Long? African-American Women in the Struggle for Civil Rights


Living for the Revolution will force scholars working on either the women’s movement or black liberation to change their standard narrative.”—Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination


“Springer’s discussion of the activities of the next generation . . . helps keep hope alive and the political fires burning. But the difficulties facing formal black feminist organizing need close scrutiny of new organization are ever to spring up and thrive. We must understand the whys and how s of their predecessors’ demise as well as of their growth and legacy. This book makes an exhilarating contribution to this process.”
(Tricia Rose, Women’s Review of Books)

“The arrival of Kimberly Springer's Living for the Revolution: Black Feminist Organizations, 1968-1980 invites scholars to include gender and women activists in their discussions of the African-American political landscape between the Second Reconstruction and the Reagan revolution. Though speaking more explicitly to feminist historiography and organizational theory, Springer's study of five prominent Black feminist organizations signals a turn in our academic approach to the liberation struggle.”
(Elizabeth Hinton, Souls)
