chpts 1 & 2 (black feminists thought)

What I’ve learned from chapters 1 & 2’s chapters on Black Feminist thoughts is that the politics of Black Feminist thought oppression. As well that black women had to fight for the right to vote. Back in the day it was hard for black women to have the right to vote not only because it was hard for women to gain the right to vote but as well it was hard for black women to gain the right to vote because of their skin color. It was stated on tuesday’s class lecture that black women fought for the right to vote  and that the fair treatment by criminal justice system. A lot of people get different point of views when it comes to black  women just because of all these different negative stereotypes black women have. Before WWII Black women would work and had a inside view into the white household, like for example when Black women would go into white household and were the white folks’ nannies. Many black feminists couldn’t read nor write, but it was difficult to defined the tradition with no name. I also learned from this chapter that black women’s realities through moments.
