Hello folks, my names is Mekala and I am a student at Cal State University Northridge. I am currently taking a Pan- African studies class on Black Women in Contemporary times. This class is very interseting and i’ll be blogging about various chapters on Patricia Hill Collins, Black Feminist Thought book. So far this book as opened my eyes to different views of how society view view the black woman and the book has also challenged me to look deeper within myself and see where I fit in, in society. So follow me on my journey to gain more insight of “the black woman” several years ago and now.
