ABSTRACT: The testimonies of Black women intellectuals have represented some of the most powerful work in regards to struggle, perseverance, and healing in negotiating life inside of the U.S. In considering Black women’s testimonial scholarship we call on hook’s notion of “radical black female subjectivity” to highlight the relevance of such scholarship to the project of scholarly rearing among generations of Black women working in/through/against academia. Specifically, this article explores how critical testimonial scholarship is read, and becomes for the reader a textual pedagogy that cultivates a sense of “scholarly rearing” and scholarly resistance in the emergent Black woman intellectual. pp. 85–99

Keywords: Black/African-American women; womanism; Black feminism; narrative; testimony; higher education; mentoring
