Abstract:

Black Feminism and Critical Race Feminism seek to validate and legitimate the experiences of women of color. They recognize the importance of auto/biography, voice, storytelling, and visibility in the search for justice and equality. Grounded in a framework based upon the principles of Black Feminism and Critical Race Feminism, this paper uses personal narratives, interviews, and archival material to demonstrate the complexity of the challenges, struggles, and successes that one Black woman experienced as she attempted to move from the legacy of slavery and the shackles of segregation and sharecropping to integration, education, and empowerment. This paper explores the auto-biographical journey and transformation of a young Black girl in rural east Texas in the 1930s to a scholar and full professor in the 1970s. It covers the historical period from 1860s and the end of slavery through the end of the 20th century, with a key focus on a sixty-year period between the 1930s and the 1990s.
Several key themes and topics are discussed: sharecropping; Black property acquisition and property loss; migration from the South; rape and sexual abuse; the role of skin color in the Black community; sexism in segregated school systems; racism in desegregated schools; discrimination in employment and housing; the role of religion and church; the challenges of balancing marriage, children, and career; health care and medicinal practices; social justice activism and community engagement; and higher education and the academy
