Full Synopsis
A classic work of feminist scholarship, Ain't I a Woman has become a must–read for all those interested in the nature of black womanhood. Examining the impact of sexism on black women during slavery, the devaluation of black womanhood, black male sexism, racism among feminists, and the black woman's involvement with feminism, Hooks attempts to move us beyond racist and sexist assumptions. The result is nothing short of groundbreaking, giving this book a critical place on every feminist scholar's bookshelf.

"Ain't I a Woman is one of the most interesting, lucid books dealing with the subject of Feminism. The book can be recommended wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in black history, in women's history, or in that much-overlooked connection between the two." -Maria K. Mootry Ikerionwu, Phylon (1983)

"Narrator Adenrele Ojo is a familiar, poetic voce for a heavy topic." -AudioFile
