Review quote

"An invaluable volume that documents the courage, strength, and fortitude of the first African American scholars to explore the discursive terrain of anthropology... A veritable treasure trove that every anthropologist needs on the shelf... Put this book on your syllabus if you want to address the major theoretical developments and the legacy of racism and sexism and contributions to anthropology made by women and people of color." -- Lee D. Baker, American Anthropologistshow more
