Summary "This book explores how diasporic black women engage in politics, highlighting three dimensions--citizenship, power, and justice--that are foundational to intersectionality theory and politics as developed by black women and other women of color. The final result expands our repertoire of methodological tools and concepts for discussing and assessing black women's lives, the conditions under which they live, their labor, and the politics they enact to improve their circumstances."-- Back cover.
