With this early set-up, one anticipates a widening critical lens to reframe black feminist thought in global perspective, not necessarily to analyze the social landscape of black women in other nations but at least to rethink the effects of transnational migration on urban environments in the US where working poor and middle-class African Americans commingle and conflict with recent black immigrants. If I had my way, Collins's feminist lens might place the hip hop feminist consciousness of Joan Morgan, Gwendolyn Pough, Lisa Jones, and Kimberly Springer in conversation with other black feminists who engage music cultures beyond hip hop, such as black feminist rock critic Daphne Brooks, or others in alternative scenes, such as the zine movement- Kpoene' Kofi-Bruce comes to mind- the Riot Grrl movement, environmental and anti-globalization movements, human rights movements, and the current femirdst blog movement.
