Discourse on Africana Womanism

About a month ago, I came across an interesting video of two incredible scholars, Dr. Clenora Hudson-Weems and Dr. Barbara Christian (may she rest in peace), presenting their personal ideology regarding the Black women and the womanist/feminist theory. In this video, Dr. Christian explains that while she is not committed to any one term defining feminism it is a well-known political term that signifies a strong stance in femaleness.  Dr. Hudson-Weems, on the other hand, constructed her own framework devoted solely to women of African descent which she refers to as Africana Womanism.


In this video, that I’ve posted Dr. Hudson-Weems explains quite elegantly what Africana Womanism is and why it is significant to women of African descent. I hope you enjoy the video.
