Our survival as African American women in a large, predominantly White research university has depended on us creating a time and space for sharing our daily experiences. In understanding the role of the process in our lives as African American women, we have drawn on the history of African American women and Blackfeminist thought. The sharing of our experiences helped us to appreciate as never before the everydayness of our lives, which raised our consciousness to also appreciate the uniqueness of our experiences. Understanding the process has moved us beyond centering our world on Whiteness to recentering our lives on our individual and collective responsibility to social justice.
