This presentation gives a picture of the strategies and intellectual frameworks employed by one working-class black woman political activist, Audley E. Moore. In doing so, Harley seeks to broaden the understanding of Moore’s work, in particular, and black women’s class identity-related engagements and global, political and cultural work, generally. This project exposes the tremendous loss to Pan-African and migration historical and cultural narratives due to the historical obfuscation of women, particularly working-class black women, from the sight of global and migration scholars. This presentation seeks to offer a critical account of how gender and class influenced black women’s’ physical, political, and ideological travels in the U.S. and abroad. Fortunately, there are a series of oral interviews and media appearances with Moore, in which she recounts her life experiences, political engagements, and global travels.
