A Shadow over Palestine

University of Minnesota Press

Against the backdrop of Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon, Chapter Five locates Black poet-activist June Jordan’s “Moving Towards Home” amid intensive disputes amongst U.S. feminists about the differentiated lived experiences of racism, Zionism, and anti-Semitism. In doing so, it tracks the absent presence of Palestine in Women of Color feminisms.
