  • For African American young women of color, the experiences in education rarely address how race and gender specifically intersect as a cultural way of knowing. The purpose of this work is to theorize Womanist Performative Pedagogy in an attempt to answer the call for pedagogies that specifically engage to the experiences of adolescent women of color in the classroom. Womanist Performative Pedagogy, grounded in the social change theory of womanism, as an anti-oppressive, vernacular, communitarian, and spiritual way of teaching, which seeks to create sacred spaces for the purpose of integrating the body, mind, and spirit towards the humanization of students, teachers, and communities in the process of education. This pedagogy engages the performative to enact womanist caring through exhibiting an ethic of care that embraces the maternal, acts with political clarity, and engages an ethic of risk.
