Since the beginning of photography’s inception, it has been a white-male-dominated field with white women being close behind, which was exacerbated when the second wave of feminism came about. As with most conversations surrounding photography and its contributors, Black women were hardly acknowledged for their contributions during the second wave of feminism. Though this course is dedicated to examining the art of Black women photographers and their contributions to the second-wave feminist movement. We will also read and learn more about the history of Black feminism and Black feminist critique.
