Black Women’s Intellectual Traditions: Speaking Their Minds (Book Title)


Program Description:

Using her book as a backdrop, Professor Conaway discusses black women intellectuals in the 19th century--women whose work had been undervalued and/or overlooked for more than one hundred years. Their theories on black liberation, the tasks of black women in a liberated society, the cult of True Womanhood, etc. are remarkable in their breadth and depth. (University of Vermont Press 2007)
