Weaving together narratives that celebrate the triumph of Black female resistance, Catherine Joy White takes us on a unique journey through the eyes of positive and inspiring disruptors.
Throughout history, acts of defiance have taken place in secret, in kitchens, churches, through trusted networks. Others were projected onto a global stage through art, politics and activism.
From Alice Walker to BeyoncÃ©, from Audre Lorde to Doreen Lawrence, from Aretha Franklin to Zendaya: Catherine Joy White charts her own journey to self-discovery through the prism of extraordinary women to create a beautiful tapestry of Black joy.
Taking on the legacy of Angela Davis’s Women, Race and Class, Audre Lorde’s Sister Outsider and Saidiya Hartman’s Wayward Lives, This Thread of Gold brings new life to the history of Black women’s resistance.
