This book examines how black women have identified challenges in major social institutions across history and demonstrated adaptive leadership in mobilizing people to tackle those challenges facing black communities.

  • Connects ideas on adaptive leadership with material on race, class, and gender
  • Recognizes black women as actively engaged in the practice of leadership as opposed to passively involved in largely supportive and/or subordinate roles
  • Simultaneously explores a host of important contemporary issues and the significant impact of black women on and their ability to tackle each issue
  • Provides recommendations for increasing the number of black women prepared to face oppression on multiple fronts
