I OFTEN REFER TO BLACK WOMEN IN AMERICA AND THROUGHOUTTHE DIASPORA AS THE MOST OPPRESSED PEOPLE IN THE WORLD,“THE TRIPLE OPPRESSED” IF YOU WILL, AS THEIRS IS AN OPPRESSIONOF RACISM, ECONOMIC EXPLOITATION AND SEXISM. Thus, I amproviding this booklet of, what I think are, six penetrating essays in order that theNew Afrikan Family may development a more acute insight into the historical andcurrent issues and concerns of Afrikan women in America. I firmly believe, as aNew Afrikan man and Nationhood Educator, that “YOU CAN TELL THE STATEOF A NATION BY THE STATION OF ITS WOMEN”. I hope We will benefitfrom the effort, Please “NJOY AND PASS FORWARD”.
