Psychology of Black Women


This course is designed to provide a critical analysis of the distinctive experiences of Black women through a psychological lens. In this course, we will explore topics relating to Black women's experiences in home, school, and community contexts, such as identity development, socialization experiences, and media portrayals of Black girls and women. The class will also consider how Black women draw on individual strengths and cultural assets to support their personal well being. We will employ Black Feminist Theory and other culturally relevant frameworks to guide our inquiry into the psychological experiences of Black women from an assets-based perspective. This course will heavily center the narratives of Black women. PREREQ: L33 Psych 100B
