The article discusses the historiography of feminist and abolitionist Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. According to the author, the historical narrative of a split between white and black women activists in the U.S. during the 19th century has elided the theoretical contributions of Harper and other black women to feminism. It is suggested that rather than choosing between working for either racial or gender equality, Harper and other black women activists made significant contributions to both.
