Black Womanhood: The Syllabus

I’m super excited to share a draft of the syllabus for Black Womanhood, the course I’m teaching with Martha Jones this spring! See below for the list of readings and feel free to tweet at us (@jmjafrx and @marthasjones_) if you decide to read alongside us. We would love to hear from you.

If your use abides by those guidelines–Awesome! Then we ask that you please cite us on your syllabus materials, analog and digital, like so: “This syllabus was adapted from the syllabus “Black Womanhood,” designed by Jessica Marie Johnson and Martha S. Jones, first taught Spring 2018 at Johns Hopkins University.”

Black womanhood readings with bonus images after the jump. Enjoy.

“We asked our contributors a central question: How do we understand our femininity in this changing world, where fascism is escalating every day? Death, by murder and suicide, is present in the work they sent us.”
