The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women's liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to black feminism and its impact on today's struggles.

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is a contributing writer at the New Yorker and a professor in the Department of African American Studies at Northwestern University. She is the author of Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Homeownership and From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation.

"Between Taylor's interview subjects--Barbara Smith, Beverly Smith, and Demita Frazier--and Pitts's passionate narration, this audiobook delivers a much-needed oral history of black feminism in the late twentieth century." ---AudioFile Expand reviews
