In this lecture, Ula Taylor, professor of African American studies at the University of California, Berkeley, discusses Frances M. Beal, a noted journalist, feminist, theoretician, and activist in the United States. However, before her notoriety as an activist, Beal became both a radical and a mother during her time in Paris, France in the ‘60s. Taylor will explore how Beal became a radical feminist for the Black freedom struggle and how motherhood, particularly single motherhood, shapes the making of a Black radical thinker.
