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 “Black Motherhood(s): Contours, Contexts and Considerations” edited by Karen T. Craddock. As described by the publisher, “This book considers Black Motherhood through multiple and global lenses to engage the reader in an expanded reflection and to prompt further discourse on the intersection of race and gender within the construct of motherhood among Black women…Largely focusing within domains such as narrative, identity, spirituality, and sexuality, the book deftly explores black motherhood by incorporating varied arenas for discussion including: literary analysis, expressive arts, historical fiction, the African Diaspora, reproductive health, religion, and social ecology.”
This program is funded in part by a Humanities Centers Grant through Florida Humanities in partnership with Florida International University.
