This course explores the production and practice of Black feminist theory in 20th-century America. We will examine the written work and the activism of African American women and will look at the ways in which their theory and practice historically intersect around questions of race, class, sexuality, nationality and gender. Because this course interrogates feminist theoretical frameworks, we will also consider how systems of oppression both create and obstruct a Black feminist politics. Using both primary and secondary sources, we will continually concern ourselves with the various articulations of Black feminism (e.g., womanism, critical race feminism, transnational Black feminism, hip hop feminism, etc.).
