Africana Womanism

In 1998, Clenora Hudson Weems argued the term, “African Womanism” as not an outgrowth nor kind of feminism. It related to the Africana family and community vs. gender. This cultural ideology insists that Africana women culturally are not at odds with their men; however, they need to unite for the liberation and survival of the Black community. “Africana Womanism” was not an individualistic ideology because it was geared toward a communal identity.
