Black Women in Education – Thanks Stephanie Evans!

While updating the “Historical Readings List” page, I came across a video by Dr. Stephanie Evans, professor of Women’s Studies and African American Studies at the University of Florida Gainsville. She wrote one of the books recommended by another black feminist blogger on the HRL, who has since closed down her blog. Her research is on black women’s contributions to education in the U.S. and as part of her own feminist commitment to ensuring we know women’s history she made this video:

Since education is such a core part of how African American women influenced political change and social justice, it is only fitting to start my Black Herstory Month with this great video. 😀
