WGS 240 African and African American Women

This course examines from a transnational perspective the ways in which race, class, and gender have influenced black women's lives. Discussion topics include familial roles of indigenous African women, institutional oppression (including slavery), male/female relationships, the U.S. Civil Rights movement, women's liberation struggles nationally and internationally, and coalition-building with women of non-African descent.
