Meeting Points is a text that bears out its name of connecting the issues of black women as espoused in their literature. Our historical antecedents of slavery and colonialism present some commonalities that lace the women's various life experiences. Underneath all this are the cementing platforms of gender and patriarchy. The feminization of poverty puts women in a lower class structure. What this text shows is how women navigate these encumbrances to still eke out a life.
