In this course students will review the theoretical texts by important Black feminists like Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells (advocating for the abolition of slavery), Rosa Parks, Ella Baker, Angela Davis (Civil Rights/Black Power Movement), Patricia Hill Collins and bell hooks (representational politics).
