THEORIZING EMPOWERMENT: CANADIAN PERSPECTIVES ON BLACK FEMINIST THOUGHT is a collection of essays by Black Canadian feminists centralizing the ways in which Black femininity and Black women's experiences are integral to understanding political and social frameworks in Canada. What does Black feminist thought mean to Black Canadian feminists in the Diaspora? What does it means to have a feminist practice which speaks to Black women in Canada? In exploring this question, this anthology collects new ideas and thoughts on the place of Black women's politics in Canada, combining the work of new/upcoming and established names in Black Canadian feminist studies.
