How should feminists today engage with the story of Sojourner Truth? How does this history interpellate white feminists and feminists of color differently? Is the very act of writing this book as a white feminist ‘appropriative’? In this conclusion, I reflect on these questions in relation to two concrete experiences, that functioned for me as ‘catalysts’ for reflecting on the politics of location and relation, self-reflexivity, and political and academic responsibility. I start from myself and reflect on the writing of this book to address larger questions about the place of white feminists in the struggle against racism within and outside of feminism and feminist scholarship.
