Bibliograph has posted fine review of Unity Dow’s Far and Beyon’ that includes a 20 minute video of Dow speaking on “Rethinking Africa.” Her ideas matter for those of us reading books by Global Women of Color. Check it out. It is so good, I want to include in my upcoming review of that book. See the video and her review at http://biblioglobal.wordpress.com/
In addition, I just posted a review of Drawing the Global Color Line: White Men’s Countries and the International Challenge of Racial Equality, by Marilyn Lake and Henry Reynolds. It’s not by or directly about global women of color, but very relevant to all who care about them. The book describes the specific ways that around 1900 white men around the world worked together to exclude define people of color as inferior and thus to exclude them form their governments and their countries.
