How might Black feminist thought remain oppositional, reflexive, resistant, and visionary in the context of contemporary intellectual and political challenges? This essay examines this challenge by engaging two questions. First, is Black feminist thought still oppositional and, if so, in what ways is it oppositional in this era? Second, what will it take for Black feminist thought to remain oppositional under current social and political conditions that appear inclusionary?
