Dr. Ashley Farmer earned a Ph.D. from Harvard University in African American Studies and History. Her book manuscript, entitled What You’ve Got is a Revolution: Black Women’s Movements for Black Power explores African American women’s political and intellectual writings during the black power movement. Through close examinations of the political speeches, pamphlets, and drawings of women in organizations like the Black Panther Party and the Congress of African People, she argues that African American women developed gender-specific political identity models that connected their gendered interests to black power ideology. Dr. Farmer is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University.
