“Anyone who claims the mantle of Black feminist theorist is standing in the house Patricia Hill Collins built. She is one the most influential intellectual architects in our country. She is still at her best and continues to ask the difficult questions scholars and practitioners who study intersectionality avoid. Collins shows us what it means to use ideas for freedom projects. He demands at all times that we behave with integrity, rigorand pay attention to the high stakes nature, of justice work. This book resets our freedom compass, reminding us both of what our work is and for whom we do it.” — Brittney Cooper, author of Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower (revised by Chasiti Lugo on November 10, 2021) [3]

Patricia Hill Collins’s Black Feminist Thought (1990), helped to create and participate in an historic moment in Black feminist theory. It was one that could be described as the dawn of interdisciplinarity in women’s studies. Collins’s deliberate centering of Black women’s voices to analyze Black women’s lives was a break from feminist analyses that were rooted in the unmarked “woman”, which tends to ignore racial and ethnic differences. It also marked a significant departure from Black cultural studies frameworks, that prioritized race and gender. This text is a rich source of polyvocal representations that include a inclusive Black women’s intellectual heritage. Black Feminist Thought has long been praised for its epistemological pluralism. This is a sign of Black Feminist Thought being able to represent the power of Black Feminist Thought and at the same time it was subtly and persistently undermined in women’s studies. These revisions were made possible by Chioma Ocampo. [4]
