, Black Feminism:
This conference is FREE and open to the public.
Traditionally, scholarship on the era has characterized this time of renewed cultural and political nationalism and activism as an almost exclusively male domain.
This has begun to change. Not only have scholars uncovered a long tradition of Black women’s activism before and during the era, but they have begun reevaluating the entire era as a result. Part and parcel with this period of activism has been the development of a Black feminist consciousness. If scholars have seen the seeds of this consciousness far earlier, the sixties and seventies were notable for organizing that recognized inextricable and complicated ties between categories of race, class, and gender.
