dc.description.abstractThis thesis presents representations of strong black women in Calypso lyrics of Calypso Rose, Singing Sandra, Singing Francine, Singing Vennie, and Queen Bee; and in Zora Neale Hurston’s work: Their Eyes Were Watching God, and Edwidge Danticat’s work: Breath, Eyes, Memory, as texts that can potentially provide for classroom use strategies for resisting hegemonic oppression, female subordination, and gender conflicts in Caribbean society. It also examines issues of gender, race, and class involving black women. In addition, it examines feminist and postcolonial analyses of gender, race, class, and Freirian Pedagogy, which should help to further understandings of black women’s struggle and oppression in Caribbean society. Finally, the pedagogical implications should be able to shed new light for teachers to empower their students the future leaders, how to resist hegemonic oppression, female subordination, and gender conflicts which impact their lives.
