Known as the Windy City and the Hog Butcher to the World, Chicago has earned a more apt sobriquet—City of Lake and Prairie—with this compelling, innovative, and deeply researched environmental history. Sitting at the southwestern tip of Lake Michigan, one of the largest freshwater bodies in the world, and on the eastern edge of the tallgrass prairies that fill much of the North American interior, early residents in the land that Chicago now occupies enjoyed natural advantages, economic opportunities, and global connections over centuries, from the Native Americans who first inhabited the region to the urban dwellers who built a metropolis in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. As one millennium ended and a new one began, these same features sparked a distinctive Midwestern environmentalism aimed at preserving local ecosystems. Drawing on its contributors’ interdisciplinary talents, this volume reveals a rich but often troubled landscape shaped by communities of color, workers, and activists as well as complex human relations with industry, waterways, animals, and disease.

This work traces the genesis and evolution of African American women's feminist discourse and intellectual enterprise from the beginning of slavery in the United States to the end of the 19th century. It does so in three ways. First, Dr. Tsenes-Hills almost solely utilizes the primary and secondary sources of African American women in order to locate and excavate the truly fascinating and extraordinary world of the 19th century Black woman. Second, she discusses this world via examination of the interior, exterior, and alternative realities that delineated the 19th century Black woman's experience. And how the combination of these realities ultimately developed, from a 'grassroots' expression of identity re-claimation and re-formation, to an intellectualized articulation of Black feminist thought and action. Third, Dr. Tsenes-Hills identifies and examines the palpable presence of African American women at the Columbian Exposition, in Chicago Illinois (1893), as one of the earliest public instances of a coherent expression of a distinct Black feminist discourse and intellectual enterprise. The end result is an innovative and in-depth examination of the unique, complex, and contradictory inner-workings of a largely unexplored sub-group of American and African American History-Black Victorian Feminists.

Despite recent advances in the study of black thought, black women intellectuals remain often neglected. This collection of essays by fifteen scholars of history and literature establishes black women's places in intellectual history by engaging the work of writers, educators, activists, religious leaders, and social reformers in the United States, Africa, and the Caribbean. Dedicated to recovering the contributions of thinkers marginalized by both their race and their gender, these essays uncover the work of unconventional intellectuals, both formally educated and self-taught, and explore the broad community of ideas in which their work participated. The end result is a field-defining and innovative volume that addresses topics ranging from religion and slavery to the politicized and gendered reappraisal of the black female body in contemporary culture. Contributors are Mia E. Bay, Judith Byfield, Alexandra Cornelius, Thadious Davis, Corinne T. Field, Arlette Frund, Kaiama L. Glover, Farah J. Griffin, Martha S. Jones, Natasha Lightfoot, Sherie Randolph, Barbara D. Savage, Jon Sensbach, Maboula Soumahoro, and Cheryl Wall.
