Black Women and Liberation

First-Year Seminar Program 110

Usual Description

Black liberation struggles in the U. S. and South Africa owe much to the brilliance of Black women’s political activism. Fighting racism, patriarchy and capitalist exploitation, women such as Angela Davis and Mamphela Ramphele employed methods of feminist leadership in community-based and national movements that ultimately claimed success. Students will evaluate their forms of activism, examine the nature of political autobiography, build library research skills and explore the bridge between community activism and intellectual life.
