PROFESSOR OF black women's studies
Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans
I study Black women's intellectual history, focusing on memoir. Specifically, I examine how African American memoirs are guides to self-care, inner peace, and stress management, particularly for survivors of sexual violence. My research on mental and holistic health shows how Africana women's life writing are paradigms for social justice education, portraits of historical wellness, and model a sustainable struggle for human rights. A luta continua.
