WGS MLK pre-doctoral fellow Nneka Dennie presents "From Abolition to Suffrage: Mary Ann Shadd Cary and Black Feminist Nationalism".
From Abolition to Suffrage: Mary Ann Shadd Cary and Black Feminist Nationalism" examines the work of Mary Ann Shadd Cary, an African American activist. It argues that Shadd Cary consistently navigated the tensions between black nationalism, on one hand, and the politics of respectability, on the other. To conclude, "From Abolition to Suffrage" explores how Shadd Cary's work offers a paradigm for interpreting nineteenth-century black feminist thought.
