Description: 
In this thesis the theme of Afro-American Women facing hidden racism has been compiled into useful information. The theme is still of worldwide concern after centuries of slavery and discrimination against Afro-Americans. The investigation has been divided into three main chapters. The first chapter deals with Afro-American women under pro-slavery rules. It describes the physical, sexual, and moral exploitation of black women during the era of slavery in the United States. The second chapter relates the first struggles against oppression. Here we talk about Anti-slavery Movements; Racism in the Women s Suffrage Movement; the Sense of Emancipation according to Black women; Education and Liberation; the Black Women s point of view; the Birth of Black Women s Rights, and Violence and Segregation coming from feminine Ku Klux Klan Groups. The third and last chapter refers to twentieth century Afro-American women and their progress during the last 100 years. Here we find information about Birth Control and Reproductive Rights; Myths; Language and Identity; the Challenge of Being Hired; the Color of Beauty; and interesting biographies of four important black women at the present time.
