Sista Talk Too

Series:

Rochelle Brock

In Sista Talk Too, Rochelle Brock brings meaningful new material which evokes and updates her past examination of Black women in today’s culture. The first Sista Talk: The Personal and the Pedagogical is an inquiry into the questions of how Black women define their existence in a society which devalues, dehumanizes, and silences their beliefs. Placing herself inside of the research, Rochelle Brock invited the reader on a journey of self-exploration, as she and seven of her Black female students investigate their collective journey toward self-awareness in the attempt to liberate their minds and souls from ideological domination. Throughout, Sista Talk attempted to understand the ways in which this self-exploration informs her pedagogy. Combining Black feminist and Afrocentric theory with critical pedagogy, Sista Talk Too frames the parameters for an Afrowomanist pedagogy of wholeness for teaching Black students and strength in dealing with an unpredictable and often unstable view of the future. Rochelle Brock brings us something to be remembered by, chapters and writings from students and colleagues to help us survive and thrive in this world…all in the spirit of love, life, and Oshun.

A Note from the Editor about Sista Talk Too

Extract



I currently exist in a space of where I need to get my words on paper, something to be remembered by, something that hopefully will help a stranger or a friend traverse and survive (thrive) in this world. I hope the second edition of Sista Talk does just that. Perhaps for those who did not read the first book it will all be brand new and meaningful. For the others who read the first book and are wanting more words and thoughts in the second I pray I am giving them what they need. A new chapter, writings from my students and a colleague. All in the spirit of love, life and Oshun.

Rochelle Brock is Professor and Department Chair of Educational Leadership & Cultural Foundations at University North Carolina, Greensboro.
