A group of radical black feminists called The Combahee River Collective was one of the most important groups to develop out of the anti-racist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection, the founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the heritage of its contributions to black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles.
