Black feminists remind us “that America’s destiny is inseparable from how it treats [black women] and the nation ignores this truth at its peril” (The New York Review of Books). Winner of the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Nonfiction “If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free.” —Combahee River Collective Statement The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles. “A striking collection that should be immediately added to the Black feminist canon.” —Bitch Media “An essential book for any feminist library.” —Library Journal “As white feminism has gained an increasing amount of coverage, there are still questions as to how black and brown women’s needs are being addressed.

Environmental collapse, I hold, is going to be the result of our present collective attitudes. Regardless of what we believe, only when humanity gets an accurate model of reality can we have a sustainable future. We Don't Get It! uses a collection of short essays that get to the heart of this major dilemma. My purpose in writing this book is to clarify some of the most compelling reasons for protecting our environment and to challenge some of our deepest assumptions about our way of life and its effect on our environment in a way that most authors on this subject have not. The intended audience for this book is the public as well as both the politicians and the scientists responsible for environmental policy. It is a thoughtful examination of our wholesale relationship to our environment and our seeming lack of respect for its absolute primacy. Designed to be easily read piecemeal by both the professional and the public, I believe this book, by its unique and frank approach, will appeal to any one who cares about our future.

That white Americans continue to insist upon a white Christ in the face of all historical evidence to the contrary and despite the hundreds of shrines to Black Madonnas all over the world, is the crowning demonstration of their white supremacist conviction that all things good and valuable must be white. On the other hand, until black Christians are ready to challenge this lie, they have not freed themselves from their spiritual bondage to the white man nor established in their own minds their right to first-class citizenship in Christ's kingdom on earth.
