RM313 – Black Feminist Theory

Examines Black feminist theory through the lens of key Black feminists, such as bell hooks, Patricia Hill Collins, Audre Lorde, and Alice Walker. Relying primarily on a guiding principle of Black feminism, the idea that racism, sexism, and class oppression are inextricably linked (also known as intersectionality), we will discuss various topics such as Black womenā€™s relationships with Black men, motherhood, work inside and outside of the home, and religion and spirituality, among others.
