Abstract

In Reimagining Liberation: How Black Women Transformed Citizenship in the French Empire, Annette K. Joseph-Gabriel examines the anticolonial work of seven black women – Suzanne Césaire, Jeanne Nardal, Eugénie Éboué-Tell, Jane Vialle, Aoua Kéita, Andrée Blouin and Eslanda Robeson – who created and practised alternative visions of liberation and identity in resisting colonialism and challenging dominant narratives of national belonging in France. Reviewing the book to mark the start of Women’s History Month in March, Lydia Ayame Hiraide welcome this rich and insightful study for not only showing us how black women have reimagined liberation throughout twentieth-century anticolonialism, but also that this spirit of decolonial resistance continues to burn bright. Reimagining Liberation: How Black Women Transformed Citizenship in the French Empire. Annette K. Joseph-Gabriel. University of Illinois Press. 2020.
