Originally published in 1985, “I Am Your Sister“ is a short yet insightful essay regarding the homophobia and heterosexism in Black communities and how it is used as a silencing tool to divide and further oppress Black women. This is a critical read for all feminists, anti-racists, and/or LGBTQIA advocates.

Most important of all is the fact that it was the blood, sweat and tears of Black women and men which financed and serviced Europe‘s Industrial Revolution, a revolution which laid the basis for Europe‘s subsequent domination and monopoly of the world‘s resources.

“We are actively committed to struggling against racial, sexual, heterosexual, and class oppression, and see as our particular task the development of integrated analysis and practice based upon the fact that the major systems of oppression are interlocking. The synthesis of these oppressions creates the conditions of our lives.” Combahee River Collective Statement.

A definite must read for all feminist.

Great book containing amazing interviews by the founders of the Combahee River Collective and Alicia Garza (co-founder of Black Lives Matter). A great resource for activists and those interested in the lessons shared by these amazing black feminist socialist activists as well as a a riveting account of their personal narratives and rise to political consciousness. Highly recommend!
