Digital Black Feminism

Digital Black Feminism

With this accessible volume, Catherine Knight Steele has offered readers a compelling explanation of Black feminist technoculture. Black women have long been at the forefront of technological advances, creation and dialogue; Steele skillfully traces their influence into the present and future." ― Ms. Magazine

"This book is a must-read in a time when we need to redouble our commitments to social justice. Catherine Knight Steele helps us understand and celebrate the powerful work that Black feminists do to make the world a better place." ― Safiya Umoja Noble, author of Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism

"Critically engages the digital possibilities of contemporary Black feminist thought and, in doing so, charts important new directions for Black feminism and technoculture. Steele argues that Black women’s creation of Digital Black Feminism reflects a sophisticated digital praxis that builds upon yet stands apart from historical traditions of Black feminist thought and hip hop feminism. A must-read book for understanding the possibilities and limitations of digital spaces for social justice projects." ― Patricia Hill Collins, author of Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and the Politics of Empowerment
