Elke week schotelt de redactie van Krapuul je 5 boekentips voor. Tips die verband houden met artikelen die in de de voorafgaande week gepubliceerd zijn of gewoon een boek dat we de moeite waard vinden om als leestip aan te bieden.

De rubriek “BOEKENTIPS” is samen met de advertenties in de rechterkolom onderdeel van ons inkomstenmodel. Wij moeten inkomsten verwerven om de hoge kosten van hosting, noodzakelijk vanwege de aanhoudende aanvallen op de website, te kunnen bekostigen.

Als jij op één van de door ons aangeboden linken naar Bol.com klikt en je koopt het of willekeurig elk ander product, dan ontvangen wij naar gelang het product een bescheiden commissie.

Dus draag je ons een warm hart toe klik en koop 😉

The Impact of Black Women on Race and Sex in America
Auteur: Paula J. Giddings

When and Where I Enter is an eloquent testimonial to the profound influence of African-American women on race and women’s movements throughout American history. Drawing on speeches, diaries, letters, and other original documents, Paula Giddings powerfully portrays how black women have transcended racist and sexist attitudes–often confronting white feminists and black male leaders alike–to initiate social and political reform.

Hallo witte mensenHallo witte mensen
Auteur: Anousha Nzume

“In dit boek wil ik graag uitleggen hoe je als wit persoon je privilege kunt erkennen en hoe je door dat te begrijpen hopelijk ook racisme in de samenleving kunt inzien en aanvechten.”
– Anousha Nzume

Of we nu willen of niet, in Nederland leven we in een witte wereld. Eeuwenlang was ‘wit’ bepalend voor de maatschappelijke en culturele status quo. Maar sinds de hernieuwde Zwarte Piet-discussie lijkt ‘wit’ onder druk te staan als nooit tevoren.

We're Rooted Here and They Can't Pull Us UpWe’re Rooted Here and They Can’t Pull Us Up
Essays in African Canadian Women’s History
Auteur: Peggy Bristow

Despite the increasing scope and authority of women’s studies, the role of Black women in Canada’s history has remained largely unwritten and unacknowledged. This silence supports the common belief that Black people have only recently arrived in Canada and that racism is also a fairly recent development. This book sets the record straight. The six essays collected here explore three hundred years of Black women in Canada, from the seventeenth century to the immediate post-Second World War period.

Claiming the HeritageClaiming the Heritage
African-American Women Novelists and History
Auteur: Missy Dhen Kubitschek

Nearly all black female novelists of twentieth–century America have found the essential substance of their art in one source–the history of black women in America.

With great range and in many voices their works convey a search for identity in the modern world. Their novels have been shaped as women, cut off psychically and physically from family and community, finding this identity through the perspectives of historical experience.

In Claiming the Heritage Missy Dehn Kubitschek writes the first full-length book on the subject of black women novelists and the heritage they discovered in the shaping of their art.

With Pen and VoiceWith Pen and Voice
A Critical Anthology of Nineteenth-Century African-American Women
Auteur: Shirley Wilson Logan

“O woman, woman! upon you I call; for upon your exertions almost entirely depends whether the rising generation shall be any thing more than we have been or not. O woman, woman! your example is powerful, your influence great.”?Maria W. Stewart, “An Address Delivered Before the Afric-American Female Intelligence Society of Boston” (1832)
Here?in the only collection of speeches by nineteenth-century African-American women?is the battle of words these brave women waged to address the social ills of their century. While there have been some scattered references to the unique roles these early “race women” played in effecting social change, until now few scholars have considered the rhetorical strategies they adopted to develop their powerful arguments.
