This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color

£21.50   paperback  State University of New York Press (2015)

This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color by Cherríe Moraga and Gloria Anzaldúa (Editors) Bronze Medalist 2016 Independent Publisher Book Awards in the Anthologies Category
FINALIST 2015 ForeWord INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award in the Anthologies Category
 
Updated and expanded edition of the foundational text of women of color feminism.
 
Originally released in 1981, This Bridge Called My Back is a testimony to women of color feminism as it emerged in the last quarter of the twentieth century. Through personal essays, criticism, interviews, testimonials, poetry, and visual art, the collection explores, as coeditor Cherríe Moraga writes, “the complex confluence of identities — race, class, gender, and sexuality — systemic to women of color oppression and liberation.”
 
Reissued here, nearly thirty-five years after its inception, the fourth edition contains an extensive new introduction by Moraga, along with a previously unpublished statement by Gloria Anzaldúa. The new edition also includes visual artists whose work was produced during the same period as Bridge, including Betye Saar, Ana Mendieta, and Yolanda López, as well as current contributor biographies. Bridge continues to reflect an evolving definition of feminism, one that can effectively adapt to, and help inform an understanding of the changing economic and social conditions of women of color in the United States and throughout the world.
