Ashley Farmer is a historian of African-American women's history and radical politics in the African-American studies department at Boston University. In her UNC Press book Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era, she unspools a sweeping history of African-American women's roles and contributions in the political and social quarters of the Black Power movement, drawing on a wide variety of artwork, manifestos, and essays produced by female members of the Black Panther Party, the Congress of African People, and other groups. Farmer complicates the narrative of these freedom fighters' marginalization, showing how they drove and defined a movement in ways that were vital if underappreciated and developed new images of African-American womanhood in the process. —Brian Howe
