Winner of the The Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Book Prize (2007)

An astonishing wealth of literary and intellectual work by nineteenth-century black women is being rediscovered and restored to print in scholarly and popular editions. In Kristin Waters’s and Carol B. Conaway’s landmark edited collection, Black Women’s Intellectual Traditions: Speaking Their Minds, sophisticated commentary on this rich body of work chronicles a powerful and interwoven legacy of activism based in social and political theories that helped shape the history of North America.

The book meticulously reclaims this American legacy, providing a collection of critical analyses of the primary sources and their vital traditions. Written by leading scholars, Black Women’s Intellectual Traditions is particularly powerful in its exploration of the pioneering thought and action of the nineteenth-century black woman lecturer and essayist Maria W. Stewart, abolitionist Sojourner Truth, novelist and poet Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, educator Anna Julia Cooper, newspaper editor Mary Ann Shadd Cary, and activist Ida B. Wells.

The distinguished contributors are Hazel V. Carby, Patricia Hill Collins, Karen Baker-Fletcher, Kristin Waters, R. Dianne Bartlow, Carol B. Conaway, Olga Idriss Davis, Vanessa Holford Diana, Evelyn Simien, Janice W. Fernheimer, Michelle N. Garfield, Joy James, Valerie Palmer-Mehta, Carla L. Peterson, Marilyn Richardson, Evelyn M. Simien, Ebony A. Utley, Mary Helen Washington, Melina Abdullah, and Lena Ampadu. The volume will interest scholars and readers of African-American and women’s studies, history, rhetoric, literature, poetry, sociology, political science, and philosophy.

KRISTIN WATERS is Professor of Philosophy at Worcester State College and editor of Women and Men Political Theorists: Enlightened Conversations (2000). CAROL B. CONAWAY is Assistant Professor of Communications at the University of New Hampshire, and an expert on the press and race relations.

Review:

“A remarkable and invaluable anthology... I read with pleasure the splendid analyses of black women’s activism and the thought-provoking interpretations of their textured voices in slave narratives, speeches, religious sermons, letters, and expressive productions.” (Darlene Clark Hine, Board of Trustees Professor of African American Studies and Professor of History, Northwestern University)

In one wonderfully rich and comprehensive volume, Waters and Conaway present the foundation of the groundbreaking, but little known, history of black women's early intellectual pursuits. (A'Lelia Bundles, author, producer, and Chair of the Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Book Prize)

The volume will interest scholars and readers of African-American and women's studies, history, rhetoric, literature, poetry, sociology, political science, and philosophy. "This work is a rigorous examination of the lives of nineteenth century women as agents of changes and vehicles of feminized rhetoric. The authors have included the scholarship of notable historians and grouped each series of essays within unique spaces of personalities and forms of activism. In-depth analysis of women and their work, utilizing new paradigms to explain and explore the lives and hallmarks within the historiography of Black women's history."ÑIda E. Jones, Howard University "Black Women's Intellectual Traditions challenges us not just to insert black women into feminist histories, but to expand and rework our definitions and histories of feminism and of African American intellectual traditions . . . Black Women's Intellectual Traditions is about the future as well as the past, and about what can be, as well as what has been, done. Its message should resonate with those in the academy and beyond, those explicitly identified as feminists and those who might deny (or be denied) that designation, and women and men of all races who seek to study, teach, and promote the black feminist vision of resistance to injustice."ÑJournal of American Historylt (Key Words: African-American Studies, Kristin Waters, Carol Conaway, Women's Studies, Intellectual History, Black Women, Maria W.
