The author explores how and why black women, from the civil rights and Black Power era of the 1960s through anti-apartheid activism in the 1980s and beyond, and in places as far-flung as New York City, Atlanta, London, and Johannesburg, used their clothing, jewelry, hair, and general "soul style" not simply as a fashion statement but as an integral part of their activism and as a powerful tool of resistance.--Adapted from publisher description.
