Africana WoManism Community Activism

"The Africana WoManist is family-centered, as she [He] is more concerned with her entire family rather than with just herself and her sisters.  According to Zula Sofola (1992) 'The world view of the African is rooted in the philosophy of holistic harmony and communalism rather than in the individualistic isolationism of Europe.  The principle of relatedness is the sine qua non ['without which it could not be']  of African social reality." ~ Hudson-Weems (1998)

Africana Womanism: Reclaiming Ourselves

“Africana Womanism is neither an outgrowth nor an addendum to feminism. Africana Womanism is not  Black feminism, Africana feminism, or Walker’s womanism that some Africana women have come to embrace” (Hudson-Weems, 1993).
