This course for those 50 and over will examine how the social and legal structural oppression of Black American women is perpetuated in America systematically and structurally. We will critically analyze how black women remain socially subjugated in spite of claims of gendered equality through the analysis of theoretical concepts associated with colonialism and imperialism.

Instructor Tanya Omolo is dual degree graduate student at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy and the School of Social Work at The University of Michigan. Her primary research and policy focus predominately concentrates on the intersection of gender, equity, and human rights for women in developing countries. She received her B.A.in Sociology from Pomona College, concentrating on gender, race, and inequity. Prior to pursuing her Master in Public Policy, Tanya managed the Workers’ Compensation program for Morley Builders, a large construction company in Los Angeles, where she created and led a program focused on providing injured workers with a voice and outlet for all concerns related to their injury.

Tanya hopes to use her education to continue her advocacy efforts and create new strategies and programs for a more equitable global community and women’s advancement.
