- A VOICE FROM THE SOUTH
DetailsA cornerstone of black feminist and political theory, this collection of essays focuses on racial progress and women's rights. A Voice from the South, written in 1892, is regarded as the first statement of black feminism. Despite their imprint of nineteenth-century social thought, these essays possess an urgent, modern tone, characterized by an emphasis on debate and a scintillating wit.Topics include the importance of women's education as well as African Americans' economic roles and their literary representation.
