About the Anna Julia Cooper Center

The Anna Julia Cooper Center is an interdisciplinary center at Wake Forest University that uses the tools of the academy to build scholarly foundations for intersectional research, teaching, and community engagement. The Center supports, generates, and communicates innovative research at the intersections of gender, race, and place, and sustains relationships between faculty, staff, students, researchers, community partners, and policy makers on campus and throughout the nation in order to ask new questions, reframe critical issues, and pursue equitable outcomes. The Center’s raison d’être is Anna Julia Cooper, whose pioneering scholarship and activism laid the foundation for black American feminism and insisted on the importance of Southern voices in American politics.
