Black Feminist Thoughts and Practices
AFAM 331
Fall 2010 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 332, ANTH 331

In this course, we will engage anthropological and historical perspectives to examine the individual and collective experiences of African American women. Our aim is to gain awareness of the political, social, and cultural threads that, when woven together, form the central themes that gave rise to organic black and radical feminist practices and ideologies. Particular attention will be devoted to developing knowledge and understanding of African American women's experiences of enslavement, efforts at self-definition and self-sufficiency, social and political activism, and the need to forge a political collective based on feminist thoughts.
