Black Feminist Approaches to Health

WOMENSTD 322

This course examines black women's health, longevity, and well-being from a black feminist perspective and focuses on how the interlocking systems of racism, poverty, violence, and sexism influence the embodied health experiences of black women. We will survey black feminist and proto-feminist coping strategies of historical and contemporary health crises.
