The black American woman resides in a conceptual space that exhibits a profound and complex network of interwoven modes of oppression. These categorical constructions clearly attempt to deny subjective agency to black women by turning all available avenues of self-identification into sites of oppression. That is, thought together, these labels form an ever-expanding discursive net that aims to capture all modes of black female agency, reducing them to categories that are subsumed under and reflective of the hegemony of patriarchal, white supremacist culture. However, even in the face of such opposition, Collins maintains that it is viable and necessary for black women to resist the force of these images. That is, how can people be sure that their resistance to one image or ideology or even a series of images or ideologies is not backing her into another? Thinking of the black woman as an emergence, as a process , is certainly a powerful vehicle for resisting such a problem.
