Womanist Ethical Rhetoric: A Call for Liberation and Social Justice in Turbulent Times, 3/17/2021 at 6PM
Join HNAC and AA/DS at 6PM EST on Wednesday, March 17th for “Womanist Ethical Rhetoric: A Call for Liberation and Social Justice in Turbulent Times” with Dr. Cerise Glenn and Dr. Annette Madlock.
Womanist thought remains of critical importance given contemporary issues of social justice and advocacy. Womanist Ethical Rhetoric centers discourses of religious rhetoric and its influence on Black women’s aims for voice, empowerment, and social justice in these turbulent times. The chapters utilize womanism, in conjunction with other frames, to examine how Black women incorporate different aspects of their identities into struggles for empowerment and celebrations of who they are in holistic ways that center love and community. This approach embraces both the commonalities and differences between womanists through theoretical and applied contexts. It advances the work of womanist predecessors and pays homage to them, most notably Rev. Dr. Katie Cannon’s work on womanism and religion. Topics analyzed include Black women’s spiritual and professional identities in religious organizations, the role of Black churches in Black Lives Matter, and the inclusion of all Black women in racial academic achievement gaps.
