Expanded Course Description
In this course, we will study contemporary novels and short stories by African American women. The 1970 anthology The Black Woman, edited by Toni Cade Bambara, will serve as a jumping-off point for our study of how a number of contemporary writers imagine the category of "Black Woman" in the decades since the Civil Rights Movement. We will consider how these works engage Women's Liberation, Black Feminism, Black Power, Black Arts, and other political movements; the increased visibility of African American women’s writing in the late twentieth century; and the relationship of these texts to the long tradition of African American literature. Authors whose works we may read include Alice Walker, Toni Morrison, Danielle Evans, and Nafissa Thompson-Spires. The goal of this course is to help you engage with African American literature, improving your writing, reading, and critical thinking skills in the process. This class requires substantial reading and writing and vigorous participation.
