“Jump at Da Sun”: Black Feminist Influences on Social Justice Pedagogy

Adrienne D. Dixson, Jamila D. Hunter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we examine the ways in which Black feminist theories inform social justice education. Drawing from a diverse body of Black feminist scholarship, specifically theories in sociology, history, literary criticism, and political science, we explore how Black women understand and make sense of knowledge. This exploration, we suggest, can be applied to an understanding of Black women teachers’ pedagogy.
