  • How does Maya Angelou perceive the African female body'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Not seeking to gain privilege for the Black community, Afrocentrism seeks to speak the truth about the suffering of racial discrimination and enslavement. Feminism exposes the stereotypes surrounding Black women due to sexism, racism and capitalism. Silence only serves to increase fear and to diminish the power of oppressed Black women. Investigating the theme of African women in poetry became central to contemporary literary studies. This study analyzes Maya Angelou’s use of imagery and body-oriented conceptual metaphors in her poetry in order to compare her perception of the African female body to that of other African poets, using LIWC-2022 and conceptual metaphor analysis. Angelou’s poems, often pessimistic, focus on societal power. Stylistically, Angelou overuses personal pronouns and does not tend to utilize impersonal pronouns. Her poetry is sentimental and emphasizes the role of the family in accordance with her understanding of the external world. Metaphors such as “Nation is a body,” “Nation is a family,” “Nation is a person,” “Social group is a fabric” and “Body is a container for emotions” are common within her oeuvre. The metaphoric understanding of “Body is a container for emotions” was most salient to understand frequently used conceptual metaphors like “Anger is the heat of fluid in a container.” However, in her book “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” the most detected conceptual metaphors are “Social groups are complex structures,” “Social group is a family” and “Community is a family”. Angelou’s style of writing and the psycholinguistic content of her work exerts a powerful influence over her readers. She focuses on society, family, the struggles inherent within social networks and the paths Black women chose to follow during these struggles.

  • Marriage as a Factor in Self-determination for West African Women

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Using qualitative methodology, 49 West African immigrants were interviewed for this study. This study examined the ways in which marriage influenced the lives of West African women. Analysis of these data supported the continued importance of marriage in the lives of West African Women, specifically, it revealed marriage as (1) a key to female identity; (2) a pathway to motherhood; and (3) a mechanism for self-determination. The use of African feminism as a theoretical lens allowed for a nuanced understanding of the marital experiences of West African women as this lens views these experiences within the cultural context of the participants.

  • Liberate Your Mind: Ghana and Kwame Nkrumah’s Influence on Contemporary
           Pan-African Consciousness in the USA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article interrogates the influence of Ghana and Kwame Nkrumah on the development of contemporary Pan-African consciousness in the USA. The research occurred between December 2018 and January 2020 in Accra Ghana, Washington, DC, and the San-Francisco Bay Area. The study included in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, and participatory observation at Pan-African events such as Kwanzaa, PANAFEST, and African Liberation Day. The findings suggest the development of Pan-African consciousness is obtained through engagement and interaction with historical and contemporary Pan-African leaders. Two main themes emerged they are (1) Linkages exist between the development of Pan-African consciousness among the Diaspora and Kwame Nkrumah and Ghana’s historical role in the Pan-African Movement, and (2) Pan-African institutions that engage in political education contribute to exposing the Diaspora to Pan-African consciousness.

  • The Struggle for Survival in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century African
           American Women’s Autobiography: Black Women’s Narrative of
           Incarceration and Freedom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the kinship between the female slave narrative and the writing of the female political prisoner during the Black Power Movement. The notion of imprisonment and escape has played an important role in the genre of African American Autobiography since its beginnings in the slavery era. To sustain this premise, this work will employ comparative analysis, which explores the constructional similarities between Harriet Jacobs’s Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (1861) and Assata Shakur’s Assata: An Autobiography (1987). This comparative analysis demonstrates that Autobiography is like Incidents in that Jacobs wrote a liberatory autobiographical text that offers mental emancipation despite her status of physical enslavement. The comparative analysis will reveal the commonality in the objectives of the struggle for survival presented in the slave narrative and the memoir of the political prisoner. Although the accounts are from two different eras, the examination will illuminate the verity that the captives give to those who are still in bondage and desperately searching for manumission. The comparison of the slave narrative and the autobiography of the political prisoner has not been widely explored in academia. In addition, the memoir of the African American woman prisoner has not been canonized as that of the woman’s slave narrative. Furthermore, the conclusion drawn from this essay demonstrates that the political prisoner’s memoir is a continuation of the same redemptive objective that is offered through the slave narrative.

  • I Need a Distinction Between the Good in Me and the Not as Good in Me:
           Black Adolescent Girls’ Binary Use of Instagram and Its Impact on
           Identity Expression

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study qualitatively explores how social media influences the identity expression of adolescent Black females. A pilot study revealed some teens have two Instagram accounts, a “Main,” or “real” Instagram account, and a “Finsta,” or “fake” Instagram account. Six Black girls from high schools throughout New York were selected for participation using convenience sampling. Thematic analysis of account observations and individual participant interviews revealed the Main account as a public space reserved for a contrived and confident persona, and the Finsta as a private space showing a side more genuine, vulnerable, and uncensored. Participants acknowledged a pressure on the Main page regarding appearance, described as uniquely severe for Black females yet simultaneously expressed an awareness of self, ownership of voice, and cultural pride. In conclusion, with adequate adult guidance, Instagram can function as a viable space for Black girls to engage in self-validation and self-expression critical to their social development.

  • Power to the People: Using Black English and Rap to Empower Students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract While some lament and disparage the use of Black English (BE), particularly in educational spaces, the purpose, power, and pragmatism of BE are elucidated in this manuscript in an effort to bring all educators into the knowledge of its potency and richness. Using Gee’s work on primary and secondary discourse as a foundation, this manuscript offers a chronology of BE, discusses its impact and usage as a mother tongue, and describes its importance in contemporary education, leveraging hip hop, rap music, in particular, as an instructional tool to substantiate the legitimacy of the BE as an already legitimate, viable dialect natively spoken by generations of Black people. This manuscript also invites readers to consider the value of BE in developing strong twenty-one-century learners by establishing multiliterate students who are conversant in an array of spoken languages/dialects and cultural nuances.

  • “Crusade” for African American Civil Rights: Female Rhetoric and
           Autobiography of Ida B. Wells

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Crusade for Justice: The Autobiography of Ida B. Wells is the inspirational autobiography of an African American civil rights leader and black feminist. Ida B. Wells, born into slavery in 1862, witnessed the Reconstruction era after the Civil War in the USA, the battle of suffrage, the World War I, and its aftermath. In her autobiography, she documents her individual struggle, her accomplishments, and her major activities in order to promote equality for women and African Americans. This autobiography provides a critical review of American racial and sexual relations. She did not simply observe the American scene, but she also transformed it as a leader in the women’s movement and the African American Civil Rights movement. The autobiography is especially important in documenting the prevalent patterns of lynching of African American men by white mobs. While protesting and writing about these horrors, Wells also fought against these illegal and violent acts. She struggled with many people to have her radical and unflinching stands represented. She had opinion differences with some of the prominent leaders including Susan B. Anthony, W E. B. Du Bois, and Booker T. Washington. She depicts these differences in her autobiography while reflecting upon her unwillingness to compromise with her stand. Thus, the present paper tries to locate the Civil Rights movement in America through female perspective. The major aim of the paper is to construct a dialogue around the autobiography of Ida. B. Wells in order to understand the role of women leaders in the Civil Rights Movement in the USA.

  • Reimagining Black Womanhood: Frances E. W. Harper’s “New Negro
           Woman”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Despite being considered a key text in African American literary history especially after its reevaluation in the 1980s, Iola Leroy, or Shadows Uplifted (1892) by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper has generally been dismissed by critics for its aesthetic and political accommodationism, bourgeois didacticism, and alleged historical amnesia. Most of these critical evaluations focus exclusively on Iola’s character. Situating Iola Leroy in its cultural and political context, this article rereads Iola’s character in relation to other women characters to argue that Harper’s text conceives a “New Negro Woman” as a counterpart of the New Negro man, long before the term became popularized. Even more, this “New Negro Woman” is shaped by African American racial heritage alongside postbellum racial uplift ideology contra the dominant “bourgeois” conceptions of the New Negro that “buried” the past in an attempt to “escape the recollection of enslavement” Gates, 1988, 139.

           Lived Experiences of Six African American Single Mothers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Grounded in Resilience Theory (Masten et al., 1990; Walsh, 1996; Walsh, 2002; Walsh, 2003) with a specific focus on parental resilience (Gavidia-Payne et al., 2015), this qualitative phenomenological study explored the lived experiences of low-income Female adult single parent (FASP) families. Each family had at least one adolescent aged 11 through 21 enrolled in special education classes and engaging in risk behaviors. Two central research questions were addressed. The first focused on the lived experiences of FASP and the second focused on their perspectives on how schools can enhance their support. Data were collected through face-to-face, in-depth, semi-structured interviews. Three major themes emerged: Life adjustment, The child is the priority, and Perseverance revealing their experience to be one of resilience. Participants also shared and provided insight on their perspectives regarding how schools can better support families. Findings revealed limited parent-school collaboration and highlight the need for further research with this population in the context of resilience. Suggestions for schools and communities working with such families are discussed.

  • Affective Orientation and School Persistence Among African American Youth:
           Implications for Afrocentric Youth Research and Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Completion of high school is a critical juncture predicting future success among adolescents. However, Black youth are often subjected to structural and micro-manifestations of structural barriers in schools, hindering their success. Moreover, research on resiliency factors associated with the academic success of Black adolescents facing structural barriers is woefully underdeveloped. In response, this study tested the associations between a resiliency factor (proposed by the Nguzo Saba and African-centered theory) and three predictors of school success (i.e., engagement, initiative-taking, and diligence). The study sample was derived from the Templeton Flourishing Children Project Pilot Study, which measured variables that contribute to “flourishing” and are important for improving youth outcomes. The sample of Black youth was evenly representative of both Black boys and girls. The results suggest that dimensions of school success can be bolstered by increased relational and personal concern among Black youth for their fellow peers, which supports that an Afrocentric worldview may be a relevant developmental asset for positive outcomes in Black adolescents. Finally, the implications of these findings are discussed, including opportunities and strategies for school behavioral health workers to assist Black youth who may be at risk for school failure.
