Virtual Book Club on Black Motherhood and Health


Virtual Book Club on Black Motherhood and Health

Join Florida International University’s Center for Women’s and Gender Studies for a lively, virtual discussion of “Birthing Black Mothers” by feminist theorist Jennifer C. Nash. Through her writing, Nash examines how the figure of the “Black mother” has become a powerful political category and acknowledges the complexities of Black motherhood outside its use as political currency. A free copy of the book is available to all participants. Let’s read together and share our thoughts on this critical topic!

This program is funded in part by a Humanities Centers Grant through Florida Humanities in partnership with Florida International University.
