Black British Feminism: A Reader reveals the historic development and important academic direction of black British feminism. This unique collection of key texts and writings by Black British women of Pacific, Asian, African, Caribbean and Latina descent living in Britain is essential reading for those interested in cultural and women's studies, sociology, and postcolonial studies.

Part 1: Shaping The Debate explores the early direction of Black feminist scholars in Britain, while Part II: Defining Our Space demonstrates the shift in the 1990s of exploring intellectual possibilities while continuing to challenge cultural imperialism in its many forms. Part III: Changing the Future looks ahead to new directions and opportunities for change engendered by a Black feminist perspective.
