Description - Not Just Race, Not Just Gender by Valerie Smith

From the nineteenth century articulations of Sojourner Truth to such contemporary thinkers as Patricia J. Williams, Black feminists have always recognized the mutual dependence of race and gender. In Not Just Race, Not Just Gender, Valerie Smith explores the myriad ways race and gender shape lives and social practices. Smith identifies black feminist theorizing as a strategy of reading rather than as something located in a particular subjective experience. Her intent is not to deny the validity of black women's lived experience, but rather to resist deploying a uniform model of black women's lives. Whether reading race or gender in the Central Park jogger case or in contemporary media, like Livin' Large, Smith displays critical rigor that promises to change the way we think about race and gender.
