Claudia Jones was a smart, politically-wise, brilliant, transnational feminist, Pan Africanist theorist and
cultural activist who brought together in her speeches and writings the politics that is now seen as a
necessary way of intersecting a variety of political fields and positions. Known as the founder of the
first London carnival and the editor of the first black newspaper The West Indian Gazette in England,
Claudia Jones’s activism bridged US and the UK with the black world politics of decolonization that
ushered in contemporary community empowerment. For the first time, in one place, Claudia Jones
Beyond Containment… brings together her essays, poetry, autobiographical and longer writings,
expanding our knowledge of several fields. Providing us with the clarity of the ideas of a black woman
activist-intellectual of her period, for a fuller understanding of Caribbean, African American and the
larger African Diaspora discourses. Claudia Jones Beyond Containment is essential reading.
