Visiting Washington, D.C.
Session Type: Symposium
In this presentation, a group of Black women discuss resistance to multiple forms of oppression as they sustain their identities, maintain their emotional well-being, and engage in activist practices. Relying on Collins’ (2000) Black feminist thought, presenters consider the role of Black sisterhood in navigating instances that can potentially challenge positive self-images. Employing a critical approach to Clandinin and Connelly’s (2000) narrative inquiry methodology, presenters theorize and discuss personally- and politically-situated stories shared in group discussions and one-on-one interviews. By inviting audience members to examine a variety of images of (and stories about) Black girls and women, the presentation will uncover ways to increase consciousness around race, gender, racism, and the politics of identity as these relate to educational opportunities.
