In this classic study, cultural critic bell hooks examines how black
women, from the seventeenth century to the present day, were and are
oppressed by both white men and black men and by white women.
Illustrating her analysis with moving personal accounts, Ain't I a Woman
is deeply critical of the racism inherent in the thought of many
middle-class white feminists who have failed to address issues of race
and class. While acknowledging the conflict of loyalty to race or sex is
still a dilemma, hooks challenges the view that race and gender are two
separate phenomena, insisting that the struggles to end racism and
sexism are inextricably intertwined.
