    Book details

In Brazil and throughout the African diaspora, black women, especially poor black women, are rarely considered leaders of social movements let alone political theorists. But in the northeastern city of Salvador, Brazil, it is these very women who determine how urban policies are established. Focusing on the Gamboa de Baixo neighborhood in Sa

""Black Women against the Land Grab" makes a unique and overdue contribution to our understanding of social movements in Brazil. In a bold intervention from the tendency to ignore women s participation in struggles for land rights and access to basic resources, Keisha-Khan Y.

Sarah Hautzinger, author of "Violence in the City of Women: Police and Batterers in Bahia, Brazil""
