about

What's Left of Blackness analyzes the political transformations in black women's community work in England from the late 1960s until the 2000s. Alongside a shift in the discourse and deployment of blackness as a political imaginary through which to engage in struggles for social justice. Fisher argues that mapping black women's socially engaged political groups—within Britain's changing sociopolitical economic context—reveals the ways in which groups transformed from anti-imperialist organizations to service provisioning groups, all the while they redefined and expanded the very meaning of 'the political.'

Tracy Fisher is an assistant professor of Women's Studies at the University of California, Riverside. She is a co-editor of Gendered Citizenships: Transnational Perspectives on Knowledge Production, Political Activism, and Culture.
