Deeply aware that they are constructed as 'Others' living in a racialised and hierarchical continent, the contibutors explore gender, class, sexuality and legal status to show that they are both invisible - presumed to be absent from and irrelevant to European societies - and hyper-visible - assumed to be passive and sexualised, angry and irrational.
Through imagining a future outside the neocolonial frames and practices of contemporary Europe, this book explores a variety of critical spaces including motherhood and the home, friendships and intimate relationships, activism and community, and literature, dance and film.

'To read this book is to fully engage in an understanding of Black Feminism and Afrofeminism praxis. It is to discover the plurality of experiences, so that a political sisterhood and a global liberation can be born' -- Laura Nsafou, blogger at Mrs. Roots and author of 'Like A Million Black Butterflies'
