#Formation as Curated by Black Women

This archive is constantly being updated…keep checking back for more. For a selection of posts that center the voices of black women from New Orleans, see here: Doing and Being Intellectual History: #Formation as Curated by Black Women.

I wrote this on my Facebook wall on February 8th:

In case my politics of citation is unclear, I am sharing posts about ‪#‎Formation‬ written by black women, +1 for those written by black southern, NOLA/Louisiana women (the VSB post was the exception, but that was funny). You don’t have to agree or like Beyonce or the video, but you do need to listen when the kindred are speaking. This is theirs and they are ours and we are theirs and they’ve got something to SAY. If you fall in this category and I can share or boost, please send your link my way…

I’m compiling them here for archive purposes only. If you decide to use any of the material here–cite the author and link to the original post as much as possible. Give the author their due. If you decide to use them in a class, ASK permission of the original author first. Yes, even if your class is today. If you want to use this post as a bibliographic reference or reading list, you don’t need my permission but let me know (I’m curious who will use this) and do please link to the original post. Otherwise…read on…

In rough order of appearance on my TL (minus the VSB post):
