SEX POSITIVE BLACK MOTHERS AND BLACK GIRLHOOD
Black girlhood is a beautiful experience despite the adversity many Black women face. In following the belief of the founder of Black girlhood studies Ruth Nicole Brown, "Black girlhood is a continuous life journey." While women throughout history have always struggled with respectability and sexual politics. Black women have had an even harder time being a woman, a sexual being, and a mother all in the sphere. We have experienced unique oppression due to both our race and gender that makes it vital that we tell our stories. Therefore, my thesis focuses on telling the narrative of Black mothers who practice an affirming sex-positive pedagogy and its influence on Black girlhood.
