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.

It's very good and read in a way that communicates its original form as conversations and essays.

I found this an interesting point of view of the challenges and frustrations of the black feminist movement. The book is presented more like an interview than a story. I learned how black women were not given an equal seat in the black activist movements led by men or feminist movements led by white women. The author has had the additional challenge of being gay but that is not a main focus of her story. This story appears to be given by an activist from a lower to lower-middle income perspective, so is very different than reading Michelle Obama's book.

The interviews are well conducted and full of great insights and historical perspectives. The book traces Black Feminism from the 70s through today's BLM movement. The narrator is lively and clear; I was able to listen at 2x without losing clarity.
