Are All the Women Still White?: Rethinking Race, Expanding Feminisms, ed. Janell Hobson (Albany: State University of New York Press, 2016), 334 pp.

The landmark study on black feminism, All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave: Black Women's Studies, was a much-needed contribution to the conversation on intersectional oppressions. Thirty years later, Janell Hobson situates her edited volume Are All the Women Still White? as a responsive engagement with the conversation that her predecessors initiated. In a notable expansion of the earlier volume's focus, Hobson emphasizes a transnational approach to tracing a genealogy of black women's political organizing and intellectual work. This collection places Alicia Garza's "Herstory of the #BlackLivesMatter Movement" alongside Gina Ulysse's reflections on the possibilities of articulating rage and pain through creative performance. Hobson's compilation of essays examines a range of topics, from social media activism to black women's work in the academy, thus expanding the vision of black women's studies to account for the leveraging of new technologies in intellectual and cultural production. Are All the Women Still White? is a thoughtful conversation on the evolving contours of black feminism in the twenty-first century. [End Page 71]
