This book is about Ashley D. Farmer
"Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era" by Ashley D. Farmer delves into the pivotal role of black women within the Black Power movement, challenging prevailing narratives of marginalization due to sexism. Published on August 1, 2019, and rooted in the domains of gender equality and racial justice, this insightful work explores how these activists reshaped black womanhood through their engagement in political, social, and cultural spheres. Farmer’s research brings to light a wealth of black women's artwork, political cartoons, manifestos, and essays from groups like the Black Panther Party and the Congress of African People. Through these mediums, the book illustrates the transformation of societal views on race, gender, and identity, showcasing the emergence of new archetypes such as the "Militant Black Domestic," the "Revolutionary Black Woman," and the "Third World Woman." These figures sparked debates and influenced a shift towards gender equality within the movement. Ideal for college-level readers, "Remaking Black Power" invites its audience to rethink the contributions of black women to a critical era of American history and encourages a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between race and gender.
