"What Nash does in Black Feminism Reimagined is new, brave, and important."--Chelsea Johnson"Women's Review of Books" (07/01/2019)
"This book brings charged feminist issues, anxieties, and negative affects to the surface for the field of women's studies to confront making for a challenging yet necessary read."--Tiffany Lethabo King"Feminist Formations" (07/01/2019)
"This is a book that generates messy feelings, that forges counterintuitive intimacies, that asks and answers difficult questions about a field that is still too often denied a brief-- at least in the US academy-- as a crucial site of intellectual motility, critical inquiry, and capacious knowledge production."--Shoniqua Roach"Syndicate" (09/01/2019)
"Black Feminism Reimagined is an invitation to explore the radical openness of Black feminism and the diversity of its potential expressions."--James Bliss"Syndicate" (09/01/2019)
"[This] book has created a moment in the academy that calls us to practice radical honesty. [Its] honesty about the affect and feelings that Black feminism-- and particularly intersectionality-- produce in the academy is a rare and refreshing break from the norms of bourgeois pretense and protocols of politesse."-- (09/01/2019)
"Black Feminism Reimagined invites us to think about which sites of black feminism have been emphasized and which have been foreclosed in its multi-decade tarrying with the academy."--Amber Musser"Syndicate" (09/01/2019)
"Nash provides an important new examination of intersectionality and Black feminism, one that will shape women's studies and feminist theory well into the future. Challenging yet enlightening, this book is sharp and nuanced and necessary. It's your end-of-year #RequiredReading."-- (12/23/2019)
