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 academic balance, self-care, inner peace, and stress management, particularly for survivors of violence. My research on Africana mindfulness and mental health shows how Black women's life writing are portraits of historical wellness, paradigms for social justice education, and models of sustainable struggle for human rights. A luta continua.
