R-E-S-P-E-C-T-A-B-I-L-I-T-Y Black Women’s Studies Since Righteous Discontent

  • Brown Unviersity CSREA Providence, RI USA (map)

The book Righteous Discontent: The Women’s Movement in the Black Baptist Church, 1880–1920 by Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham has impacted a wide range of disciplines and areas, among them, gender and sexuality studies, histories of labor and resistance, and black feminist theory. This two-day symposium will gather together scholars working in African American women’s history and black feminist theory to celebrate and reflect upon the impact of “the politics of respectability” on the shape and substance of scholarship in these fields.
