Daina Ramey Berry and Kali Nicole Gross
A Black Women's History of the United States
With Sabrina Jacobs

Reaching from the year 1600 to the present day, A Black Women's History of the United States - written by renowned authors and historians Daina Ramey Berry and Kali Nicole Gross - provides a necessary, long-awaited re-centering of American history from the perspective of all those folks who have been left out of our history books. Wide-ranging and inclusive, this book examines a diversity of Black women, including cisgender and transgender women, rich and poor, educated and uneducated, reformers, enslaved women, artists, activists, imprisoned women leaders, and everyday people. A critical survey of their complex legacy, A Black Women's History of the United States considers not only the exploitation and victimization of Black Women, but also their undeniable and substantial contributions to the country since its inception.

"Remarkably comprehensive and accessible, introductory and sophisticated, two groundbreaking historians have come together to produce a new history of Black women in the United States." -Ibram X. Kendi, author of Stamped From the Beginning

Daina Ramey Berry is the Oliver H. Radkey Regents Professor of History and Associate Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Texas at Austin. She is the author or co-editor of seven previous books, including The Price for Their Pound of Flesh: The Value of the Enslaved, from Womb to Grave, in the Building of a Nation - winner of the 2017 SHEAR Book Award for Early American History.

Kali Nicole Gross is the Martin Luther King Jr. Professor of History at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Her previous books include Hannah Mary Tabbs and the Dismembered Torso: A Tale of Race, Sex, and Violence in America, winner of the 2017 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award in Nonfiction.
