Product Details

Praise

“A landmark black feminist text … Deserves rereading.”
Ms.

“One of the first books truly critiquing the systems in place, ways of thinking and being that feed the myth of black women as the ultimate heroine.”
The Root

“A light to Black Feminism, Women and Gender Studies, African American and Diaspora Studies, Film Studies, popular culture, the art world, and beyond.”
Feminist Wire

“Serious, well-written, effective in its demystification, valuable as a model of hardheaded but caring analysis, principled in its criticism … Wallace’s fearless presentation of her analysis quite takes the breath away.”
—Toni Cade Bambara, Washington Post

“Courageous, outspoken, clear-eyed.”
Publishers Weekly
