"This the ConscienceRebel": Class Solidarity, Congregational Capital, and Discourse as Activism in the Writing of Black Female College Students
Kynard, Carmen
Teaching Education, v22 n3 p217-238 2011
ConscienceRebels are women of African descent who align themselves with the struggles of working class/working poor black communities and intentionally counter and re-script exclusive, dominant discourses. Any self-identified black female college student who focuses on the black poor or working class in their writing forms the basis of this study which attempts to provide a heuristic for educating black female undergraduate writers. The overarching goal is to highlight purpose and form in the writing of ConscienceRebels in order to wed three discursive and political movements for their writing instruction and education: class solidarity, cultural capital, and discourse as activism.
