This introductory essay offers a broad overview of the history and scholarship on black internationalism and examines the significance of employing a gender analysis and centering women’s ideas and activities. In so doing, it engages two central questions: (1) how was black women’s engagement in internationalism similar to or different from their male counterparts?, and (2) To what extent did black women merge internationalism with issues of women’s rights or feminist concerns? It also highlights the book’s interventions and provides a roadmap for the individual essays in the book, arranged thematically and chronologically.

Keywords:   African American women, black women, black internationalism, black life, African diaspora, Feminism, Pan-Africanism
