        II. Kawaida Womanism: Philosophical and Practical Orientation A. Definition Kawaida womanism is culturally grounded thought and practice directed toward the liberation of African women as an integral and indispensable part of the liberation of African people as a whole, which includes not only freedom from oppression, but also the creation of those conditions necessary for the well-being.   Womanism recognizes the inherent beauty and strength of Black womanhood and seeks connections and solidarity with Black men. Womanism identifies and criticizes sexism in the Black American community and racism in the feminist community. It further holds that Black women’s sense of self depends equally on both their femininity and culture.
