Title: Shadowboxing: Representations of Black Feminist Politics
Author: James, Joy
Abstract: Shadowboxing presents an explosive analysis of the history and practice of black feminisms, drawing upon political theory, history and cultural studies in a sweeping interdisciplinary work. James charts new territory by synthesizing theories of social movements with cultural and identity politics. She brings into the spotlight images of black female agency and intellectualism in radical and anti-radical political contexts, challenging readers to rethink understandings of the changing Africana presence in American culture.
