Anna Julia Cooper was an American author, educator, black liberation activist, speaker and sociologist. Her book, “A Voice From the South by a Black Woman of the South”, is considered one of the earliest analyses of the unique situation of Black women in the United States. It is considered a classic text on African American feminism. In her book, Cooper offers clearly articulated insights about racialized sexism and sexualized racism without ignoring the significance of class and labour, education and intellectual development, and conceptions of democracy and citizenship.
