Un autre regard de la femme noir dans tous les aspects de la vie à travers les livres , les articles, les interview et les documentaires."La femme africaine n'est ni un reflet de l'homme ni une esclave.
Elle n'éprouve aucun besoin d'imiter l'homme pour exprimer sa personnalité.
C'est une civilisation originale qu'elle secrète par son travail. son génie propre, ses préoccupations, son langage et ses mœurs" Albertine Tshibilondi Ngoyi

04 January 2012
Civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer organized “Mississippi Freedom Summers” to educate black citizens about voting rights and register them to vote.
In February 1926, historian Carter G. Woodson, the son of former slaves, initiated Negro History Week to encourage African Americans to study their own history. Fifty years later, as the United States celebrated its bicentennial in 1976, President Gerald Ford urged all Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history” and designated February as Black History Month. Since then, Americans of all races have explored the history and contributions of African Americans during the month of February. In 2012, the theme of Black History Month is Black Women in American Culture and History.
This issue ofeJournal USAprofiles African-American women of the 20th and 21st centuries who have made significant contributions to many spheres of American life. It also offers insights into how earlier generations of African-American women serve as touchstones for the present generation.
The list of women featured here, while not comprehensive, is wide-ranging. It includes women who have devoted their talents and energies to business, civil rights, politics, academia and mass media. Each in her way has affirmed the American Dream not only for African Americans, but for women and men of all ethnicities.
