Welcome to the North Carolina Black Feminisms (AMST 65) class exhibit! A First-Year Seminar, the class was designed to help students develop their own sense of Black feminist thought and practice through exploring the lives and works of seven key Black feminist figures with ties to North Carolina: Harriet Jacobs, Anna Julia Cooper, Pauli Murray, Ella Baker, Nina Simone, Jaki Shelton Green, and Alexis Pauline Gumbs.

This student-designed exhibit showcases what students learned from researching four additional Black feminist figures with North Carolina ties that they chose: Sarah Keys Evans, Ann Atwater, Sonja Haynes Stone, and Elizabeth Keckley. These figures embody four reoccurring themes in Black feminisms: self-determination, resistance, creativity, and community.
