Black women, creativity, and styles of delivery

This semester, I'm teaching an African American literature course focusing on black women, creativity, and styles of delivery. The course is comprised of 35 first-year, collegiate black women.

We'll cover a variety of topics and materials, and we'll have a recurring focus on varied ways that black women present ideas -- vocally and in print. I'll provide blog entries concerning the content, plans, and reflections about the course.
