Africana Studies Award and publication


I'm excited to find out that I won the Africana Studies Award for best essay for my paper, “The Creation of the ‘Spiritual Black Woman’ Genre Image Through the Strong Black Woman Stereotype.” I wrote the paper for the Comparative Black Feminisms course I took last spring. Although the award is an honor itself, it also comes with a cash prize! Now I must get my 13 page paper down to 8 or 9 pages and then read the whole thing at the reception on February 25th.

BTW, for those interested, I wrote a short article titled,
Super Duper Sexual Spiritual Black Woman: The New and Improved Magical Negro, about the topic for Clarkesworld Magazine.
