PROFESSOR OF black women's studies
Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans
I study Black women's intellectual history, focusing on mental health and wellness. Specifically, I examine how African American memoirs serve as guides to self-care, healing, and inner peace, particularly for survivors of violence. My work in Black women's studies provides historical insight into social justice education and work for social change. In sum, I research how Africana women's life writing offers paradigms of sustainable struggle for human rights. A luta continua.
