Reviews

"A transformative and unprecedented contribution. It recovers material, heretofore mostly unexamined, to identify each woman's local and global positionalities, that is, their national circumstances as well as the areas where they and their struggles intersect. Readers eager to learn about this historical and literary era will discover gems in this book."--Renée Larrier, author of Autofiction and Advocacy in the Francophone Caribbean

"Seven black women anchor Dr. Annette Joseph-Gabriel's, Reimagining Liberation, an inspired and original history of decolonization. These women's imaginings and practices of liberation politics and decolonial citizenship made them resilient political protagonists in a time of upheaval. In her important book, Joseph-Gabriel compellingly argues for doing far more of what she, Suzanne Césaire, Paulette Nardal, Eugénie Éboué-Tell, Jane Vialle, Andrée Blouin, Aoua Kéita and Eslanda Robeson have done: centering black women's experiences, politics and leadership within struggles to identify and challenge global systems of injustice."--Jennifer Boittin, author of Colonial Metropolis: The Urban Grounds of Anti-Imperialism and Feminism in Interwar Paris
