Negritude Women by T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting
The Negritude movement, which signaled the awakening of a pan-African consciousness among black French intellectuals, has been understood in terms of the contributions of its male founders. This masculine genealogy has completely overshadowed the central role played by French-speaking black women. Sharpley-Whiting offers a long-overdue corrective, revealing the contributions made by the women who were not merely integral to the success of the movement but often in its vanguard.
