"In this pathbreaking collection of articles, Dr. Beverly Guy-Sheftall has taken us from the early 1830s to contemporary times. Only since the seventies have black women used the term "feminism." And yet, it is that concept that she uses to bring into the same frame the ideas and analyses of Maria Stewart, Sojourner Truth, and Frances W.E. Harper of the early nineteenth century, and the work of women such as the late Audre Lorde, Barbara Smith, and bell hooks who stand on the threshold of the twenty-first century... She has refused to cut off contemporary African American women from the long line of sisters who have righteously struggled for the liberation of African American women from the dual oppressions of racism and sexism." —From the epilogue by Johnnetta B. Cole, President, Spelman College "The indefatigable Beverly Guy-Sheftall has put together a breathtaking sweep of African American feminist thought in one indispensable volume." —Elizabeth Spelman, Professor of Philosophy, Smith College

Ein Kalb wird bei lebendigem Leib verbrannt, und sechs brennende Schwäne fliegen über den Marebo-See. Frauen verschwinden, eine Amerikanerin wird in der Kirche erdrosselt, und ein Lastwagen voller Dynamit lässt den Dom von Lund in Flammen aufgehen. In seinem neuen Kriminalroman spannt Henning Mankell den Bogen von dem furchtbaren Massaker in Jonestown, Guyana 1978, wo ein religiöser Fanatiker seinen Anhängern befahl, Selbstmord zu begehen, bis zum 11. September 2001. Mankell ist ein atemberaubender Roman gelungen: diesmal mit Linda Wallander in der Hauptrolle.

Im Jahr, als Sri Lanka unabhängig wird, kommt der elfjährige Triton als Boy in das Haus von Mister Salgado, einem Meeresbiologen, der nur einen Lebensinhalt hat: das gefährdete Universum des Ozeans. Für den Jungen wird das Haus des Junggesellen zu einem abgeschlossenen Mikrokosmos. Er lernt, das Silber so zu polieren, dass es schimmert wie geschmolzenes Sonnenlicht, den Liebeskuchen mit zehn Eiern zu backen und für die Freundin seines Herrn den Papageienfisch zu dünsten. Und er lernt, mit wachen Augen die politischen, sozialen und amourösen Ränkespiele zu beobachten. Hintergründig erzählt Triton seine Geschichte. Naiv und wissend zugleich, tapfer und ängstlich - die eindrückliche Stimme eines Jungen, der in einer zerbrechenden Welt erwachsen geworden ist.

Why has the African American community remained silent about gender even as race has moved to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness? In this important new book, two of the nation’s leading African American intellectuals offer a resounding and far-reaching answer to a question that has been ignored for far too long. Hard-hitting and brilliant in its analysis of culture and sexual politics, Gender Talk asserts boldly that gender matters are critical to the Black community in the twenty-first century. In the Black community, rape, violence against women, and sexual harassment are as much the legacy of slavery as is racism. Johnnetta Betsch Cole and Beverly Guy-Sheftall argue powerfully that the only way to defeat this legacy is to focus on the intersection of race and gender. Gender Talk examines why the “race problem” has become so male-centered and how this has opened a deep divide between Black women and men. The authors turn to their own lives, offering intimate accounts of their experiences as daughters, wives, and leaders. They examine pivotal moments in African American history when race and gender issues collided with explosive results—from the struggle for women’s suffrage in the nineteenth century to women’s attempts to gain a voice in the Black Baptist movement and on into the 1960s, when the Civil Rights movement and the upsurge of Black Power transformed the Black community while sidelining women. Along the way, they present the testimonies of a large and influential group of Black women and men, including bell hooks, Faye Wattleton, Byllye Avery, Cornell West, Robin DG Kelley, Michael Eric Dyson, Marcia Gillispie, and Dorothy Height. Provding searching analysis into the present, Cole and Guy-Sheftall uncover the cultural assumptions and attitudes in hip-hop and rap, in the O.J. Simpson and Mike Tyson trials, in the Million Men and Million Women Marches, and in the battle over Clarence Thomas’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Fearless and eye-opening, Gender Talk is required reading for anyone concerned with the future of African American women—and men. From the Hardcover edition.
