Cheryl Clarke, Angela Davis, bell hooks, June Jordan, Audre Lorde, and Alice Walker—from the pioneers of black women’s studies comes Still Brave: The Evolution of Black Women's Studies, the definitive collection of race and gender writings today. Including Alice Walker’s groundbreaking elucidation of the term “womanist,” discussions of women’s rights as human rights, and a piece on the Obama factor, the collection speaks to the ways that feminism has evolved and how black women have confronted racism within it.

"Still Brave is among the most important collections of writings to date." —ForeWord Reviews

Still Brave is a monumental book that reminds us of the centrality of Black Womanist genius and talent grounded in courage and struggle. We can never understand what it means to be modern, new world, or African without this precious volume.” —Cornel West, author of Race Matters

“Radiant with intellectual energy, this sequel to But Some of Us Were Brave will be as indispensable to women’s studies scholars of every race, age, ethnicity, and theoretical orientation as its precursor was." —Sandra M. Gilbert, author of The Madwoman in the Attic

“In short [Still Brave] is courageous, necessary, and exquisitely edited. It is a true testament to the scholar to which it is dedicated.” —Melissa Harris-Perry, author of Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America

“A courageous, beautiful history of global importance. Black feminism and Black Women’s Studies are monumental achievements. Still Brave shows why.” —Catharine R. Stimpson, author of Where the Meanings Are: Feminism and Cultural Spaces

Moses, editorial director emerita, Feminist Studies
