Abstract

In 1982, African American feminists, writers, and educators Gloria T. Hull, Patricia Bell Scott, and Barbara Smith co-edited a foundational volume of essays designed to map a program for African American women’s studies and research on issues ranging from racial bias and sexism, to homophobia entitled: “All the Women Are White, All the Blacks are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave.” For the Fordham Law symposium honoring 100 years of women at Fordham Law School, we now reflect on that volume in relation to African American women’s intersectional gender and race representation in the legal profession.
