How We Get Free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

Reflections on the legacy and impact of radical black feminists of the 1960s on today's feminist and anti-racist movements. The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women's liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organisation and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today's struggles.

This new collection of a four-decades-old text reminds us that black women have long known that America's destiny is inseparable from how it treats them and the nation ignores this truth at its peril. -The New York Review of Books A striking collection that should be immediately added to the Black feminist canon. -Bitch Media An essential book for any feminist library. -Library Journal The publication of How We Get Free marks the 40th anniversary of the Combahee River Collective statement, which is often said to be the foundational document of intersectional feminism. As white feminism has gained an increasing amount of coverage, there are still questions as to how black and brown women's needs are being addressed. This book, through a collection of interviews with prominent black feminists, provides some answers. -Rachael Revesz, the Independent For feminists of all kinds, astute scholars, or anyone with a passion for social justice, How We Get Free is an invaluable work. -Ethnic and Racial Studies Journal
