Black feminism : anthologie du féminisme africain-américain, 1975-2000( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in French and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les textes présentés dans ce recueil du Black feminism - le premier en France - explorent sur une période de trente ans les thèmes de l'identité, de l'expérience singulière, de la sororité, de la sexualité, comme la place dans les institutions, les coalitions nécessaires et les alliances possibles, les formes culturelles de rébellion et de lutte, le passage de témoin entre générations. Pourquoi, en France, ex-puissance coloniale, l'équivalent d'un féminisme noir n'a-t-il pas existé? Ces textes, par leur vitalité et leur perspicacité politiques, invitent à poser cette question et à s'interroger autrement sur les faux-semblants de l'universalisme républicain comme sur les points aveugles du féminisme français."

Invisibility blues : from pop to theory by Michele Wallace( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1990, Michele Wallace's Invisibility Blues is widely regarded as a landmark in the history of black feminism. Wallace's considerations of the black experience in America include a look at the continued underrepresentation of black voices in politics, media, and culture, and legacy of figures such as Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Cade Bambara, Toni Morrison, and Alice Walker, Wallace addresses the tensions between race, gender, and society, bringing them into the open with a singular mix of literary virtuosity and scholarly rigour. Invisibility Blues challenges and informs with the plain-spoken truth that has made it an acknowledged classic"--Back cover
Witnessing lynching : American writers respond( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Witnessing Lynching: American Writers Respond is the first anthology to gather poetry, essays, drama, and fiction from the height of the lynching era (1889-1935). During this time, the torture of a black person drew thousands of local onlookers and was replayed throughout the nation in lurid newspaper reports. The selections gathered here represent the courageous efforts of American writers to witness the trauma of lynching and to expose the truth about this uniquely American atrocity. Included are well-known authors and activists such as Frederick Douglass, W.E.B. Du Bois, Langston Hughes, Ida B. Wells, and Theodore Dreiser, as well as many others. These writers responded to lynching in many different ways, using literature to protest and educate, to create a space of mourning in which to commemorate and rehumanize the dead, and as a cathartic release for personal and collective trauma. Their words provide today's reader with a chance to witness lynching and better understand the current state of race relations in America."--Jacket

Passing, lynching and Jim Crow : A geneaology of race and gender in U.S. visual culture, 1895-1929 by Michele Wallace( )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation looks at combinations of race and gender ideologies at the turn of the century generated by U.S. imperialism and the world's fair movement as manifested in visual culture, especially visual art, popular culture and cinema. There is a focus not only on explicating the white supremacist terms, adapted from a plantation slavery context, which generated the criteria of racial hierarchy and the proclivity towards lynching as an expression of its greatest failure, but also the response of black intellectuals, such as W.E.B. DuBois, Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells, Mary Church Terrell and Anna J. Cooper to the formulation of these social and cultural restrictions and limitations imposed upon the descendants of former slaves. These race/gender ideologies (combinations of race and gender) are then concretized in visual imagery in fine art, illustration, material culture, photography, performance and practices of human display in natural history museums, zoos, and world's fairs. The first half of this dissertation looks at the general trends in U.S. visual culture up to, and including, the innovation of cinema at the turn-of-the-century; the second half considers, in particular, the emergence of Afro-American, or black images in silent cinema (1895--1929) with a specific focus on gender, homoeroticism and (mostly hetero)sexuality. Considered in more exhaustive detail are the various film versions of Uncle Tom's Cabin, D.W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation and Oscar Micheaux's Within Our Gates
