The Black Girlhood Studies Collection
Imagining Worlds for Black Girls
This seminal text is one of the first collections to exclusively explore, develop, and evaluate theories of Black girls and girlhoods. This contributed volume brings together emerging and established scholars from North America to discuss what Black girlhood means historically and in the 21st century, and how concepts of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, religion, and nationality inform or affect identities of Black girls beyond school or urban settings. Divided into three sections, special topics covered include Black feminisms, intersectionality, intellectual tradition, pleasure and erotic agency, media and fan activism, construction of self, leadership, social change, toxic masculinity, and Black girls in STEM. Black Girls and Girlhoods is a vital resource that will evoke meaningful discussion and change for students in African studies, Black studies, Child and Youth studies, Gender and Women studies, Media studies, and Sociology courses globally.
