By Erica Lorraine Williams
Anthropology must urgently move away from the mainstream canon that excludes the groundbreaking work of Black women anthropologists. I argue that a Historically Black College for women offers a unique site in which one can center Black women in anthropology in novel ways. I offer specific examples of texts that I teach by Black women authors within and beyond anthropology, and the pedagogical strategies I use to challenge students to re(write) anthropology from the margins.
