Building Womanist Coalitions

In this chapter, the author writes about her experiences with spirituality in the classroom. For most of her life as a teacher/professor, the classroom has not been a hospitable place for the expression of spirituality. Neither has it been a space even for the serious consideration of spirituality. She notes that it would be true until she completed her second book about womanism, The Womanist Idea, at the end of 2010. It was at that point that she decided to bring spirituality into the classroom. Moreover, she made the decision to include it in all of her academic, scholarly, intellectual, and political work—whether people liked it or not.

Keywords:   spirituality, classroom, womanism, womanist idea, teacher/professor
