A groundbreaking anthology that illuminates historical and contemporary solidarity between Black and Asian feminists, helping us make sense of the world we’re in and the world we must imagine and build. 

For many in the US and abroad, calls to #SayHerName, the uptick in violence against Asian Americans throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 2021 Atlanta spa shootings remain raw and unhealed. Black & Asian Feminist Solidarities contextualizes a cross-racial feminist politics that explicitly addresses solidarity between Black and Asian feminists. Taken together, the pieces remind us that wherever there is struggle against oppressive systems, there is great possibility for empathy, respect, and solidarity.

A collaborative project between Black Women Radicals and the Asian American Feminist Collective, this unprecedented work brings together organizers, artists, journalists, poets, novelists, and more, introducing readers to new ways of understanding and reflecting on race and feminism. The anthology wrestles with contemporary feminism through a multitude of angles—from the Combahee River Collective to nail salons and massage parlors, from misogynoir to the model minority myth.

Edited by co-founders of BWR and AAFC—Rachel Kuo, Jaimee Swift, and Tiffany Diane Tso—the anthology features poetry, critical essays, interviews, creative nonfiction, and other contributions by/with Barbara Smith, Tamara Nopper, Franny Choi, Sonya Renee Taylor, and several other vital, radical, feminist voices.
