ABSTRACT

The author began to write his first book at the age of 19, Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism. Challenging and changing female sexist thinking was the first step towards creating the powerful sisterhood that would ultimately rock our nation. When contemporary feminist movement first began we had a vision of sisterhood with no concrete understanding of the actual work we would need to do to make political solidarity a reality. Overall women in our society are forgetting the value and power of sisterhood. Renewed feminist movement must once again raise the banner high to proclaim anew Sisterhood is powerful. Radical groups of women continue our commitment to building sisterhood, to making feminist political solidarity between women an ongoing reality. We continue the work of bonding across race and class. And we have the good fortune to know everyday of our lives that sisterhood is concretely possible, that sisterhood is still powerful.
