Monday, December 22, 2014: Dr. Chinosole - Educator, Pan-Africanist, Black Feminist, Prisoner Advocate

"I would not have any man ever tell me what to do."

Chinosole (July 14, 1942 - October 4, 2014)

Women's Magazine remembers the life and work of scholar-activist Chinosole, former chair of Ethnic Studies and Women's Studies at San Francisco State University. She once wrote that the most important theory was being done not in the academy but in the prisons.  We hear from her colleagues and friends Hamdiya Cooks-Abdullah and Jennifer Beach and her cousin, Aleea Maye, as well as her own voice.

Chinosole was a Pan-Africanist who believed that working in coalition was as valid 40 years ago as it is today. That we need to be tolerant of the many different ways of organizing and we should use "every means necessary" that would work in organizing: marching, teaching, art, and protesting.
