Produktbeschreibung
Sista Talk: The Personal and the Pedagogical is an inquiry into the questions of how Black women define their existence in a society which devalues, dehumanizes, and silences their beliefs. Placing herself inside of the research, Rochelle Brock invites the reader on a journey of self-exploration, as she and seven of her Black female students investigate their collective journey toward self-awareness in the attempt to liberate their minds and souls from ideological domination. Throughout, Sista Talk attempts to understand the ways in which this self-exploration informs her pedagogy. Combining Black feminist and Afrocentric Theory with critical pedagogy, this book frames the parameters for an Afrowomanist pedagogy of wholeness for teaching Black students.

Rezensionen
"Joining well-crafted storytelling to social analysis, Rochelle Brock's introspective inquiry provides an exciting examination of unequal power, race, womanism, alienation, consciousness, and transformation. This is must reading for those who care about learning and the human spirit. (William H. Watkins, Professor of Education, University of Illinois at Chicago, Author of 'The White Architects of Black Education')
"Rochelle Brock, feeling that she has 'stood on the shoulders of giants', has been influenced by the work of African-American scholars such as Patricia Hill Collins, Joyce King, and bell hooks. This book provides the search for Afrowomanist pedagogy by relying on student voices and a slice of autoethnography. Professor Brock reminds us of the power of an emancipatory pedagogy that is critical, Afrocentric, and Black feminist. This book is a must read for educators interested in a critical transformative multicultural education." (Lourdes Diaz Soto, Professor of Education, The Pennsylvania State University)
"'Sista Talk' is a journey through the personal and pedagogical. Rochelle Brock stitches together empirical research and action research to present a dialogue about Black women's empowerment. A blend of theory and practice, 'Sista Talk' strives to find a pedagogy appropriate for the education of Black students, particularly Black females. Brock has invited her readers to participate in a dialogue that must continue if we are to successfully educate Black children." (Venetria K. Patton, Associate Professor of English and Director, African American Studies and Research Center, Purdue University)…mehr
