Black Women as Leaders: Challenging and Transforming Society

Author(s): Martin, Lori;
Contributors: Martin, Lori;
Abstract:

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
