Product code: 9780872731844
A landmark exhibition on display at the Institute of Contemporary Art from June 26--September 30, 2018, "We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85" examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism. It showcases the work of black women artists such as Emma Amos, Maren Hassinger, Senga Nengudi, Lorraine O'Grady, Howardena Pindell, Faith Ringgold, and Betye Saar, making it one of the first major exhibitions to highlight the voices and experiences of women of color. In so doing, it reorients conversations around race, feminism, political action, art production, and art history in this significant historical period.

The second volume associated with the show, "New Perspectives" includes original essays and perspectives by Aruna D'Souza, Uri McMillan, Kellie Jones, and Lisa Jones that place the exhibition's works in both historical and contemporary contexts. It also includes two new poems by Alice Walker. The book is generously illustrated with major objects from the exhibition, installation views from the Brooklyn Museum, and other photographs. A checklist of the exhibition as well as an extensive bibliography complete the volume.
