MORRIS, Catherine; HOCKLEY, Rujeko (eds.)
We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85. New Perspectives

The exhibition We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 focused on radical approaches to feminist thinking developed by women artists and activists of color. The Brooklyn Museum published two volumes: the first, a Sourcebook, was published in 2017 and focused on re-presenting key voices of the period by gathering a remarkable array of historical documents; the second volume, New Perspectives, includes original essays and perspectives by Aruna D’Souza, Uri McMillan, Kellie Jones, and Lisa Jones that place the exhibition's works in both historical and contemporary contexts. New Perspectives also includes two new poems by Alice Walker. The book is generously illustrated with major objects from the exhibition, installation views, and other photographs. A checklist of the exhibition as well as an extensive bibliography complete the volume. [publisher's note]
