New and updated edition of the classic work of black feminism.
“Michele Wallace keeps her eyes open and her wits about her. Scrupulously fair, honest, funny, clever, wise.”
“Invisibility Blues shows why Michele Wallace has long been at the forefront of African-American cultural criticism.”
—Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
“Invisibility Blues is a warm book, even a hopeful one. Simultaneously confident and vulnerable, full of hard-earned insights into American culture and un-starry-eyed evaluations of the available role models, it is the unfinished saga of a proud outsider trying to make a place for herself and her sisters.”
—Lucy R. Lippard
“Courageous … outspoken … clear-eyed.”
“Wonderful … original.”
—Susan Brown Miller
