Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around
Forty Years of Movement Building With Barbara SmithBook - 2014
"'Not a memoir, a biography, nor a reader. It is a reflection and a conversation. It is also a montage of forty years of documents, interviews and articles that provide useful lessons for social justice work' ... As an organizer, writer, publisher, scholar-activist and elected official, Barbara Smith has played key roles in multiple social justice movements, including Civil Rights, feminism, lesbian and gay liberation, anti-racism, and Black feminism. Her four decades of grassroots activism forged collaborations that introduced the idea that oppression must be fought on a variety of fronts simultaneously, including gender, race, class and sexuality. By combining ... historical documents with new unpublished interviews with fellow activists, this book uncovers the deep roots of today's 'identity politics' and 'intersectionality' and serves as an essential primer for practising solidarity and resistance"--Publisher's description.
