SOC506 – Rolling with the Queen: Patricia Hill Collins & Black Feminist Thought


We go deep into higher level theory with Black Feminist Thought (BFT as we like to call it) as presented by the one and only Dr. Patricia Hill Collins. We discuss the history of the Frankfurt school of thought and the genesis of Dr. Collins’ own ‘critical social theory.’ Her theory is steeped in American culture, history, and law, as she works to understand the experiences of Black American women. From standpoint epistemology to matrix of domination, we’ll break it all down for you so you’ll be ready to learn more!
