Anna Julia Cooper: “Dedicated in the Name of My Slave Mother to the Education of Colored Working People”

Hypatia 19 (2):56-73 (2004)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The achievements of Anna Julia Cooper are extraordinary given her life circumstances. Driven by a desire Cooper called "a thumping within," she became a prominent educator, earned her Ph.D., and influenced the thought of W.E.B. DuBois and others. Cooper fought for her educational philosophy, but despite her contributions, her apparent elitism has shaped contemporary assessments of her work. I argue that her views must be considered in social and historical context.
