This reading-intensive course focuses on Black American women writers. It examines classic and contemporary memoir and autobiography in order to engage the variety and distinctiveness of Christian beliefs and practices. We will consider how race and gender inform representations of the self and how such representations speak to their social and religious contexts. Readings include work by Jarena Lee, Ellen Tarry, Pauli Murray, and others.
