  • MEMOIRS ARE MENTORS! Black Travel Memoirs is a mapping resource by Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans. This map locates historical and geographic information on Black world travelers found in the book Black Passports: Travel Memoirs as a Tool for Youth Empowerment (SUNY Press, 2014). The project maps locations of over 200 African American autobiographers who wrote international travel memoirs. This resource is created as curriculum for teachers, researchers and mentors to enhance youth empowerment. Information ~ Stephanie Y.

  • This resource maps cookbooks authored by women of the African diaspora. Whether featuring the hometown of the author or the focus of the cuisine, this map encourages exploration of heritage and health. This map was created by Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans as part of the Womanist Wellness research project to provide resources for health of mind, body, and spirit. Visit http://www.africanamemoirs.net/ for more about the life narratives project and http://www.professorevans.net/ for additional information.
  • This resource by Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans maps meditation memoirs by Black Women. This is a digital resource for the book, Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing: Meditation and Wellness in Black Women’s Memoirs offers groundbreaking insight into the range of ways in which Black women address anxiety in four areas: personal stress, interpersonal stress, social stress, and political stress. Over 150 life stories reveal how Black women from diverse geographic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds have defined meditation as consciousness (mind), yoga and nutrition (body), and prayer (spirit). Numerous public figures such as Ruby Dee, bell hooks, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Coretta Scott King, Queen Latifah, Audre Lorde, Miriam Makeba, Rita Marley, Toni Morrison, Rosa Parks, Alice Walker, and Venus and Serena Williams join dozens of writers who provide new understanding about wellness. As mental, physical, and spiritual health, wellness in memoirs and autobiographies serves as a much needed strength-based guide. Centenarian educator Anna Julia Cooper and artist Annie Lee are highlighted as portraits of Black women’s quest for inner peace. Forthcoming book by Dr. Stephanie Y. Evans http://www.professorevans.net/
