Black Women Speaking From Within

Essays and Experiences in Higher Education

Series:

Edited By Kelly K. Hope

In Black Women Speaking From Within: Essays and Experiences in Higher Education, contributors use intersectional and interdisciplinary lenses to share the ways in which they understand, navigate, resist, and transform student services, learning, teaching, and existing in the academy. This book explores and discusses the following question: How do Black women experience and perceive place and agency in higher education? Black Women Speaking From Within draws upon the influence organizational culture, sense-making, and sisterhood has on praxis and pedagogy and places the Black woman’s stories and experiences at the center of the conversation.

Black Women Speaking From Within: Essays and Experiences in Higher Education extends Black women’s contemporary resurgence in the political mainstream into the academy. This groundswell of voices advocating for visibility, representation, and power validates the unsung experiences of generations of Black female academicians who have challenged the lack of inclusiveness, and it deftly demystifies higher education for the next generation of professional women in the academy.” —Susan Marcia Monroe, Associate Professor of English and First Year Studies, Housatonic Community College
