RELG-203: Christian Ethics
Womanism is feminism for women of color.
According to Floyd-Thomas, radical subjectivity is described as “bonds of learning and growth from mature to immature beings as a way to actualize agency and a subjective view of the world/self for black women, rather than see themselves as victims of circumstance. It gives the black woman a sense of identity that goes beyond racist, sexist, and classicism categories they are often unwillingly ascribed to.” Our website is an attempt to empower Black women and fight against negative stereotypes. It is meant to embody this idea of radical subjectivity in a fun and informative way through the Personality Quiz. A major source of influence for this project was Emilie Townes, as she also attempts to positively redefine Black women stereotypes in her book, Womanist Ethics and the Cultural Production of Evil. We created this website in order to shed light on the different kinds of Womanist out in the world and the personalities that are accompanied with them.
