Jcarlacio@bmcc.cuny.edu

Since the era of slavery and continuing through the present, Black women have articulated a vision of freedom, equality, anti-racism, and racial uplift, drawing from Scripture to sustain their work of promoting equal rights for African Americans. From the early female abolitionists such as Maria Stewart, Sojourner Truth, and Harriet Tubman, to the anti-lynching activists Ida B. Wells and Mary Talbert, to the twentieth-century civil rights activists Ella Josephine Baker and Septima Clark, and countless others, these “churchwomen” actively challenged the status quo that relegated Black women to the least empowered positions in the social order. In their effort to address slavery, segregation, violence, disenfranchisement, and civil rights, these women moved audiences toward social reform with stirring speeches; cultivated activism by establishing clubs and councils; and held key leadership positions in political organizations including the the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA). We seek papers from any theoretical or critical perspective that analyzes the ways in which these or other Black women activists employed their religious or spiritual authority to effect radical social change in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries.
