  5. Conclusion

Regardless of the racial and gender discrimination, African-American women have built up rich intellectual tradition they are well known off. The author investigates the words and ideas of Black feminist intellectuals as well as other African-American women outside the feminist class. Patricia Hill adds up, interprets and emphasizes on the work of other prominent Black feminists such as Bell Hook.

The book and the ideas in the book are well crafted and provide first hand impression of the Black feminist thought. Patricia adopted a methodology that was essential to her work as it produced meaningful components. Her work has been characterized by massive rejection. She is against the western binary thoughts (Collins, 2000, p. x) and she declines to divide theory from everyday life. In addition, she rejects the idea of separating herself from her study and firmly involving herself both as an academic and an African- American descent. She has clear examples that are evident in her book that explains why she rejects most of the common aspects of a researcher. For example, she examines the extorts from slaves' and domestic workers' description of their lives and the lyrics that Black women have used in their music are considered as Black feminist thinkers and novelists. Her methodology has helped her to expand her research on Black feminist and help redefine the traditional definition and understanding of the term again ?intellectual.'

[...] Black women should be given a chance of being heard and to forward their knowledge claims without them feeling that their position is deemed less credible than the White people (Collins p.290). She is standing tall and requesting a fair validation of knowledge for the Black feminist. Patricia Hill Collin is a distinguished author and Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland. She has worked principally on issues involving feminism and gender with an emphasis on African- American community. She has vast knowledge after well endowed research using numerous of sources such as poetry, music, film and oral history. Reference Collins, P.H. (2000) Black Feminist Thought. [...]
