African ideas of gender in colonial Zimbabwe centrally shaped oppositional responses well before the advent of nationalism. Citing a wide collection of vibrant oral histories, the author argues that urban African men and women in colonial Harare constructed complex yet coherent indentities and durable hopes for themselves in broad moments of gendered conflict and consensus.
