The "initiated," moreover, either embrace the wickedness (as do men like the "pilgrims" and, most significantly, Kurtz) or resist it and become the enlightened -- truly, "Buddha[s] preaching

    Black Women in Art Historically and currently African American women use art as a way to express themselves, their emotions and as an act of resistance. In this paper, I will discuss the various ways two very influential artists, Laurie Cooper and Lorna Simpson, use imagery to uncover and forefront the various forms of oppression that affect their lives as African American women.

    the South forced all people—men, women, blacks, and whites alike—to reconsider how they defined their freedom in America. The plantation hierarchy, which had enforced the relative stratification of the southern population for centuries, placing white men at the top, followed by white women, then black men, and finally black women at the bottom, was put into jeopardy by the emancipation of the slaves. In particular, the demarcation between white women and freed black men was obscured. The curtailment

However, I was able to find little bits of helpful information in each article and with the help of the article “Lifting as We Climb” (which

    Black Women in Sports: Sexuality and Athleticism Men and women who chose to engage in sports from which they would traditionally be discouraged because of their gender, particularly as professionals, redefine the sport. The social and cultural "costs" are not the result of the individual's participation, but rather the way in which sports have been socially, politically, and economically constructed.

    The Impact of Slavery on Black Women “Only by experience can any one realize how deep, and dark, and foul is that pit of abominations.” (Jacobs, 120). These words are spoken by Harriet Jacobs (also known as Linda Brent) and after reading about her life experience as a slave, I have come to believe that slavery was far worse for women than it ever was for men. Jacobs never states that black slave men had it easy during the slave years, in fact she tells a few stories about how some slave men were

    Gwin‘s book, Black and White Women of the Old South, argues that history has problems with objectiveness. Her book brings to life interesting interpretations on the view of the women of the old south and chattel slavery in historical American fiction and autobiography.

Gwin described the "sisterhood" between black and white women as a "violent
