African-American Women and Social Mobilization: a Misrepresented Activism

Abstract : African-American women, for being both black and female, suffer from interlocking systems of oppression, among which racism and sexism. During the decades of upsurge activism in the United States, their specific identity has put them at a standing point within both the civil rights and the feminist movements. Scrutinizing their involvement in those movements opens the way to an analysis of their representation, at the time and retrospectively. The role of the media and education in the construction of a biased historical narrative has resulted in the advent of Black Women’s Studies, which aims at recasting African-American women’s representation.
