Illustration for article titled Melissa Harris-Perrys Black Feminism Syllabus Is All Kinds of Amazing

Last week, whilst schooling Michelle Cottle on her insipid "Michelle Obama is a feminist nightmare" article, Melissa Harris-Perry quipped, "You might want to read up a little bit on black women and our feminism. I'm happy to send you a syllabus." To which the Internet responded, "Um, yes, please do."


Very happily, that quip has now become reality: here is MHP's suggested reading list on black feminism. It's an amazing, inspiring, hugely necessary resource, and it covers a wide breadth of theory and history. Take a look, educate yourself, share it, use it to augment your holiday wishlist, bookmark it for future use, print it out and turn it into a vision board, etc etc.


Also: please comment with any additional texts you think deserve a spot on the syllabus!
