Purpose

We are interested in exploring how Black women affect and are affected by social policies, the media and other institutional practices. In addition, we want to explore how black women and girls enact their own identities artistically, academically, religiously, politically, etc. The larger purpose is to encourage and promote research on Black women and girls. As a research­-working group, we seek to engage in critical works that complicate the existing narratives of Black women and girls and that speak to the heterogeneity of these populations on a global scale.
