      From H-Women (5/3/2012) From: "Lauren Kientz Anderson" Subject: Re: bourgeois vacuity In one of my previous blog posts, I wrote about the claim that the black middle class was vacuous during the 1920s. In the comments, I was challenged to update my historiography on the politics of respectability. This gave me the chance to read Erin Chapman's excellent new work, *Prove it on Me: New Negroes, Sex, and Popular Culture in the 1920s. *Her prose is gorgeous and dense. Many of the things I was feeling instinctually, she articulates with precision." Here's Chapman's challenge to Anderson.
  • two major camps. There were those who sought to modernize and professionalize established ideologies of racial advancement, solidarity, and uplift through a New Negro progressivism.... Others.. questioned, if not the very idea of racial solidarity itself, then at least the obligation of racial allegiance and respectability, and instead touted a radical individualism and independence from all but the most personal allegiances to 'art' or 'self' or some other self-generated ideal."
  • transition between the politics of respectability and New Negro Modernism

  • After reading Chapman's introduction, I can see how much the women I study straddle that line, sometimes evoking the one and sometimes evoking the other.
  • politics of respectability
  • formation of the sex-race marketplace
  • development of an intra-racial discourse of race motherhood
  • Together, they rendered black women largely invisible, their subjectivity flat and inhuman, for the greater part of that century

Women's Institute - 0 views

  • the Women's Institute will be in a growth process that will culminate in the launch of the Women's Leadership Center (WLC) in 2012.
  • The Women's Leadership Center (WLC) will be dedicated to our bedrock belief that women's leadership can and will change the world for the better. By training women to lead from their own authentic vision; encouraging women to develop both their inner spiritual strength and outward skillful action in the world; fostering a paradigm shift from control over others to partnership with others; and helping women develop the multiple human intelligences of mind, body, heart, and spirit, the Women's Leadership Center (WLC) will help support women in becoming important change agents for the 21st century.

    Just found this interesting. Having an urge to break from the time frame of study; I see this as where women find help and empowerment to make change and a difference.
