Education and Access to Christian Thought in the Writing of Harriet Beecher Stowe and Anna Julia Cooper
Magno, JoJo
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2009 n2 2009
In attempting to climb past the racist and sexist barriers which existed in nineteenth-century America, women could look to writers such as Harriet Beecher Stowe and Anna Julia Cooper. Their works not only reflect the conditions of women and African-American women in particular, but also call for access to educational opportunities for these women to provide a gateway to Christian thought. Bible study and theological education extended the idea of women and blacks as God's creatures, possessed of a soul, and rebutted the use of Scripture by Southern white males to promote slavery and segregation. (Contains 54 footnotes.)
