Spiritual W.E.A.P.O.N.S: The Role of Black American Religio-spirituality in the Administration of Black Female Principals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using narrative analysis, the intersectionality of gender, race, and religio-spirituality highlighted the relationship of past and current religio-spiritual leadership practices that contest the status quo of most U.S. schools. Four texts written as spiritual narratives illuminate the continuing tradition of religio-spirituality as a “weapon.” As metaphor, “weapon” represents religio-spirituality as a means to challenge naïve, conservative, androcentric, business models ubiquitous in our increasingly complex society (Shields, 2004). As an acronym of the findings, W.E.A.P.O.N.S represents Word, Wisdom and Witness; Ethics of Religio-spirituality; Armor and Activism; Perseverance and Prayer; Ontology and Epistemology; Naming; and Spiritual Fruit. Our study contributes to reconceptualizing educational administration by emphasizing the voices of Black women principals.
