Starting from a foundation provided in the book Four Hundred Souls, edited by Ibram Kendi and Keisha Blain, we will explore how American feminist activists, often considered radical in their time, have helped make the United States more inclusive and equitable over time. We will then use this context to consider the role of women as political actors in our current polarized historical moment.
Required book: Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619-2019 (edited by Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain)
Instructors: Emily and Joshua Frank
