Jenn M. Jackson has been known to bring deep historical acuity to some  of the most controversial topics in America today. Now, in their first  book, Jackson applies their critical analysis to the questions that have  long energized their work: Why has Black women's freedom fighting been  so overlooked throughout history, and what has our society lost in the  meantime? A love letter to those who have been minimized and forgotten,  this collection repositions Black women's intellectual and political  work at the center of today's liberation movements. Across thirteen  original essays that explore the legacy and work of Black women writers  and leaders--from Harriet Jacobs and Ida B. Wells to the Combahee River  Collective and Audre Lorde--Jackson sets the record straight about Black  women's longtime movement organizing, theorizing, and coalition  building in the name of racial, gender, and sexual justice in the United  States and abroad. These essays show, in both critical and deeply  personal terms, how Black women have been at the center of modern  liberation movements, despite the erasure and misrecognition of their  efforts. Jackson illustrates how Black women have frequently done the  work of liberation at great risk to their lives and livelihoods
