“A Black Feminist Statement”—The Combahee River Collective
“The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master’s House”–Audre Lorde
Topic: As we have discussed this semester, the creation of races was an intentional project that resulted from the European Enlightenment and its philosophical, artistic, and scientific communities. In Fanon’s chapter “On Violence” from The Wretched of the Earth, he discusses the various forms of violence perpetrated against the oppressed by the oppressor (he calls them the colonized and the colonizers). He observes that often, violence must be met with violence. In the music and poetry by Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets, and Nina Simone, the artists expose the horrors of living in a world of white supremacy domination and the daily violences upon Black and brown communities. In our final texts, the Black radical feminists and Audre Lorde offer us insights into what we can do to destroy white supremacy and the Chronopolitics of Man. They have specific ideas and applications that we can all use in this post-1492 world.
In a well-developed, thesis-driven essay of 2-3 pages (500-750 words) using our final texts in this unit as well as our class discussions and lectures, respond to the following prompt:
What are some of the ways YOU can use the ideas and theories you learned in this class in this post-1492 world? You may use first-person narration (“I” statements) and please try to be as specific as possible. For example, “I will use the idea that I must always consider Black liberation in my own struggle for liberation…..”
Your essay should convince the reader that the claim you make (your thesis) is an arguable one, not simply a statement of fact.
Be sure to support your claim with quotes (textual evidence) from the text.
Papers must be 2-3 pages and follow MLA format: typed, double-spaced, 12 pt., Times New Roman font with 1” margins and left-alignment.
