Happy Women’s History Month! Celebrate with a free ebook copy of Colored No More: Reinventing Black Womanhood in Washington, D.C. by Treva B. Lindsey and a special issue of Women, Gender, and Families of Color (WGFC).
Colored No More traces how African American Women of the late 19th and early 20th century helped make Washington D.C. a more equal and dynamic urban center during the New Negro movement. Lindsey explores the struggles of upward mobility and equal citizenship through the intersections of race, gender, class, and sexuality and their place at the core of New Negro womanhood.
WGFC’s special issue, “Trump’s America? Disquiet Campus? Marginalized College Students, Faculty, and Staff Reflect on Learning, Working, Living, and Engaging,” examines the impact of the modern political climate on higher education and academic culture. Contributors take a look at its effect on the treatment of students and faculty of color, citizenship for students, historically black colleges, “civil discourse,” the history of activism on college campuses, and much more.
