Shirley Moody-Turner, Associate Professor of English and African American Studies at Penn State University, turns to the work of visionary black feminist Anna Julia Cooper to consider a fuller history of the women’s suffrage movement. In 1892 Cooper mounted an incisive critique, arguing that race, gender, and class politics had splintered the movement and that a broad and inclusive approach to social justice was necessary. She centered black women in the struggle to realize an inclusive democracy and claimed for black women, a national public voice rooted in collective action and community care.
