Abstract: African American Women: Experiences of Oppression and Resistance Working Entry-Level Positions in Spokane, Washington

Mentors: Pui-Yan Lam, Ph.D., Sociology

This research gains the negative experiences of a few African American women who work or have worked entry-level positions while residing in Spokane, Washington. The perspectives of experienced oppression and resistance to oppression in the workplace are the main issues focused on in this paper. This paper is to add to previous research on African American women's experiences in realms of middle-class employment (See Martin 1994, St. Jean & Feagin 2004, Simpson 2006, Terhune 2008). Inquiries of entry-level oppression and resistance aims to value African American women's experiences and perspectives regardless of education and status, as Patricia Hill Collins suggests in "The Social Construction of Black Feminists Thought" (1989). Inquiries about resistance versus using workplace protocols for such is suggested.

Abstract: African-American Women: Perspectives on Oppression and Resulting Activisms

Mentors: Pui-Yan Lam, Ph.D., Sociology and Justice Studies and Kelly Coogan, Ph.D., Women's and Gender Studies

The literature used in my research includes works which pertain to Black Feminist Theory and the intersecting social categories of race/class/gender. It will also focus on the inequalities faced by African American women in various social realms (primarily the workplace). In reviewing such works, I want to address issues that African American women continue to face in the midst of progress made towards race/class/gender equality through the theoretical lens of Black Feminist Thought. I will discuss the implications of alternative suggestions made in Patricia Hill Collins' "Social Construction of Black Feminist Thought" (1989) towards the application of qualitative inquiries regarding Black women's perspectives on oppression and activism. I will apply Collins'alternative suggestions to my research as a means to emphasize African American women as subjects and not objects in research involving their constant struggles in American society.
