Psychology of Black Women


This course is designed to provide a critical analysis of the distinctive experiences of Black women through a psychological lens. We will explore topics relating to Black women's experiences in home, school, and community contexts, such as identity development, socialization experiences, and misogynoir. The class will also consider how Black women draw on individual strengths and cultural assets to support their personal wellbeing. This course will heavily center the narratives of Black women, and focus on mixed methods and qualitative research approaches. We will draw upon interdisciplinary frameworks (e.g., intersectionality, Black feminist thought, and liberation psychology) to help us understand Black women's experiences. PREREQ: L33 Psych 100B
