Brittney Cooper: Eloquent Rage

Free Tickets Available via

Brittney Cooper is a writer, teacher, public speaker, and the author of "Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower" (2018). An Associate Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies at Rutgers University, Dr. Cooper has published several book chapters and articles on representations of Black women in popular culture, including a piece on the representation of the "baby-mama" figure in Hip-Hop music and film, the feminist implications of Janet Jackson's 2004 Super Bowl mishap, and the importance of Michelle Obama in the tradition of Black female leadership. Cooper’s scholarly research interrogates the manner in which public Black women have theorized racial identity and gender politics, and the methods they used to operationalize those theories for the uplift of Black communities.
