Overview

In Black Sexual Politics, one of America's most influential writers on race and gender explores how images of Black sexuality have been used to maintain the color line and how they threaten to spread a new brand of racism around the world today. In the tradition of her award-winning book, Black Feminist Thought, Patricia Hill Collins now turns her critical eye to race, gender, and sexuality in relation to black men and women.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In a book of sophisticated critical theory that could be used as a tool for antiracist political action, Collins (Charles Phelps Taft Professor of Sociology, Univ. of Cincinnati; Black Feminist Thought) asserts that "racism and sexism are deeply intertwined, and racism can never be solved without seeing and challenging sexism." Thus, African Americans must examine how sexual politics within black communities either reproduce or resist forms of racism. Like Stuart Hall's Representation: Cultural Representations & Signifying Practices or Mark Anthony Neal's Soul Babies: Black Popular Culture and the Post-Soul Aesthetic, this well-written text argues that images from popular culture shape ideas about black gender. For example, traditional stereotypes such as "the breeder woman" found in the slave-holding South have been reworked into the "welfare queen" of today's inner cities. Collins's razor-sharp analysis is unfortunately hampered by an exclusive focus on black/white social interactions, whereas contemporary American society is marked by multiculturalism. This is, however, an important work. Strongly recommend for public and academic libraries.-Katherine C. Adams, Bowdoin Coll., Brunswick, ME Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
