The conclusion considers works by a subsequent generation of writers and their visions for women’s political organizing and intellectual production. AWA: La Revue de la femme noire, a woman-centered journal published in the 1960s and 70s, offers a site for examining the ruptures and continuities in black women’s formation of transnational feminist networks and their engagement with anti-imperialist movements after independence. AWA’s definition of black womanhood as a transnational identity echoes the feminist politics of earlier works and raises questions about the representation of black women’s bodies that add new dimensions to the writings of their predecessors.

Keywords:   independence, transnational identity, feminist networks, black womanhood, intellectual production
