Class Experience

At the end of the course, young scholars will be able to understand key figures, movements, and events within Black feminisms. They will also be able to describe the cultural impact of Black women intellectuals in the production of Black feminist theory on the US, and to some extent, international Black women. They will employ a working knowledge of Black feminist theory and the intersectionality of race, class, gender and sexual orientation. Additionally, they will be able to xplain and differentiate between the three waves of feminism and the impact of socially constructed stereotypes on Black women.
Students are expected to engage with weekly reading, short answer essays, and creative projects that will be further outlined in the Outschool classroom.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learner progress will be assessed via weekly discussion questions that students will reflect on and answer in preparation for our next meeting. The course will culminate in a final project where students complete a creative project. Options for the creative project include:
- drafting a collective statement, similar to that of the Combahee River Collective's in support of a new style of feminism (or a related theory) that addresses themes/concerns important to them. 
- using Canva to create a film or book cover of a feminist text they imagine.
- creating a Black Feminism Travel Itinerary.

We will discuss these possibilities and more during the course. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
e will discuss difficult themes including, but not limited to: 

· Misogynoir
· Hyper-sexualization
· Adultification
· Racism

Regardless of age, these topics are often hard to digest and your student will likely need your support to unpack and move through the content in between sessions.

Politically and culturally sensitive topics will be discussed each week of class with some topics being heavier than others. We will routinely approach highly sensitive topics including state-sanctioned violence, police brutality, criminality and systemic oppression. The course educator has undergone significant Diversity, Inclusion and Sensitivity trainings to properly support students in understanding and processing this information. Sessions where tough topics will emerge will be preceded by a content warning.

Google Drive/Classroom/Suite Apps: Google Drive & Classroom will only be used during our allotted class time to access class readings and Google slide presentations.

Quizlet: Students will utilize Quizlet to review important terms and definitions as they curate their final presentations.

YouTube: Pre-screened content from YouTube will be included in Google slide presentations presented to the class via screen-share.

The 2-4 hours of week outside of class are not to be spent working within Google Classroom/Suites, but to read & engage with the next session's assigned reading by answering questions shared at the end of the previous class session.

Canva: Canva will only be used during final projects should students choose the creative film/book cover project option. Students will access this individually and will need a personal account to do so. They should download their image as a JPG or PDF file before the final class session.
