About this product
- DescriptionThis book records how Black women carved space within a specific community - with its political challenges and social realities - to determine and redefine their conditions. Photographs, poems and press cuttings enrich this historical and reflective account of the activism and achievements of the Abasindi Cooperative and its political impact. It shows Abasindi as a significant contributor and historical antecedent to community activism in the UK today against race, class and gender oppression. Above all it is a book about the daughters of ordinary women who individually and collectively have achieved extraordinary things. Two academics, active in Abasindi for decades, describe and reflect on its challenges and achievements.
