Art & Resistance 2: Black Women Subjects Free from the Gaze
This lesson was crafted as part of an instructional unit for a college level English class with high school supports (IB DP Language A: Literature).
The impetus for continuing to center our literature study in resistance stems from out study of the works of Toni Morrison and her professional ethos that her "sovereignty & authority as a racialized person...be struck immediately" in her writing while "...not speak[ing] for Black people;...[but]..speak[ing] to and be[ing] among [black people]". Her determination "to make sure that the white gaze was not the dominant one in any of [her] books" is an example of the importance and power of authentic creation.
