Black Feminist Science

Archaeologists have the potential to contribute to collective black history and memory, and to help black folks reconstruct their histories from a more politically aware viewpoint. I am a member of a historically disempowered and marginalized group with access to forms of elite knowledge, utilizing social theory and producing knowledge within a field that has traditionally been dominated by white men.  From my position, I am able to rearticulate the stories of the black women in this collection and lend my own critical insights into the history of oppression.
