Summary
"This research study examines nine African American women educators during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement in South Carolina. Additionally, the study conducts an analogous study of the lifeworks and contributions of Septima Clark, an African American woman educator who made significant community activist contributions during this period. For its research methodology, the study utilized the qualitative research methodology of oral history which involves in-depth interviewing as the primary method of data gathering. The research which utilized semi-structured open-ended interviews was guided by the following key questions: 1) How did the experiences of the Civil Rights Movement matter to you as a woman and African American person?; 2) What did it mean for you to be part of the civil rights struggle?; 3) How did the 1960s matter to you?; 4) How did South Carolina matter? Black feminist theory, Critical Race Theory (CRT), and Critical Pedagogy provided the theoretical and analytical bases for interpreting the data. The study focused on the impact of race, class, and gender in the lives of these nine women, and indicated that these factors played a significant influence on the lives of each woman. While each element was a pivotal influence, race was identified as the most prominent element as it regulated and dictated every component of each woman's lived experience. Four themes emerged from the analysis of the data: ... Resiliency, Resourcefulness and Preservation, the Struggle Against Racial Oppression, Education as A Tool for Social Empowerment, and, Eradicating Silence, and Finding One's Voice."--Page iii
