Abstract: This book is an ethnographic work conducted at Gamboa de Baixo neighbourhood in the Northeast of Brazil, a poor Black century-old fishing community. Keisha-Khan Perry’s study is centred on the daily struggles of the women in the leadership of this community, exploring the central role of community-based Black politics, specifically Black women fighting to avoid eviction from their land and for social rights such as water and dignified housing.
