This seminar investigates the various ways that Black women of the 1960’s and 1970’s in the United States and South Africa have led their communities and their freedom movements (e.g., civil rights, anti-apartheid) with an important array of skills, resources and vision. Students will be asked to think critically about the properties of women’s leadership and political consciousness. We will use autobiographies and other secondary sources, develop research skills, and explore the bridge between community-based activism and intellectual life. Enrollment Limit: 14.
