“I speak for the colored women of the South, because it is there that the millions of blacks in this country have watered the soil with blood and tears, and it is there too that the colored woman of America has made her characteristic history and there her destiny is evolving.”
– Anna Julia Cooper, World’s Congress of Representative Women, 1893 Chicago World Fair
“Beyond the Threshold: Exploring the intersection of Race, Gender, Welfare & Resilience”
The purpose of this study is for me to learn directly from the experiences of Black women who at some point received public assistance who are willing to share and reflect on the processes.
It is my hope that this study will shed more light on an understudied area, the resilience of Black women. Additionally, this study will demonstrate the importance of and the need for more Black women to have a seat at the table when social welfare policy is developed.

“Maximizing Human Potential: African-American Female College Students”
The purpose of this study is for institutions of higher education as well as academic and personal development programs to be informed by the lived experiences of African- American (Black) female college students. It is my hope that institutions become more intentional in how they address the unique needs of students at the intersections of race and gender.
