Instructor

Natalie Jolly

Abstract/Description

There was a time when black women were not considered human beings. They were animals, only good for labor and breeding. As time moved on, black women were stereotyped and still not seen as equal to their white counterparts. Now, black women are breaking down barriers and making history, showing that a black woman is not what society has negatively claimed, but worthy of much more appreciation and respect.
