Double Burden: Black Women and Everyday Racism

Front Cover
M.E. Sharpe, Jan 13, 1998 - Social Science
0 Reviews
Studies of contemporary black women are rare and scattered, and are often extensions of a legacy beginning in the 19th century that characterized black women as domineering matriarchs, prostitutes, or welfare queens, negative characterizations that are perpetuated by both white and non-white social scientists. Based on over 200 interviews, this book departs from these conventions in significant ways, and, using a collective memory conceptual framework, shows how black women cope with and interpret lives often limited by racial barriers not of their making.
