Slave women lived with the dual burdens of racism and sexism in the plantation South. This new edition of Ar'n't I a Woman? reviews and updates the scholarship on slave women and the slave family, exploring new ways of understanding the intersection of race and gender and comparing the myths that stereotyped female slaves with the reality of their lives.
Finally, this groundbreaking study shows us how black women experienced Freedom in the Reconstruction South--their heroic struggle to gain their rights, hold their families together, resist economic and sexual oppression and maintain their sense of womanhood against all odds. Softcover, 244 pages.
