Golden Gate University Law Review


This article is a reflective essay that was written as a result of the author's participation in a symposium held on September 12, 1992 at the American University Washington College of Law on "Discovering Our Connections: Race and Gender in Theory and Practice of the Law." The writer's panel was assigned the topic, "Philosophy, Morality and Foundations of Law" from which to address the symposium subject. The essay explains and addresses why African American women find it difficult to embrace the feminist agenda and reflects on whether there is common ground or some connection among the multivalent interests of race and gender.
