Portrait of Dr. Brandy Thomas Wells

Dr. Brandy Thomas Wells

Assistant Professor

101 SSH


United States; African American History; Women and Gender 



Dr. Wells is currently preparing a book manuscript that analyzes African American women’s international interests and activities from the 1890s through the 1960s. Her work illuminates how members of the National Association of Colored Women Clubs (NACWC) and the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) pursued anti-colonial and anti-imperialist agendas, and how they communicated, cooperated, and competed in the overall quest for civil and human rights. The project has received generous funding from the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the International Chapter of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, among other organizations. Dr. Wells’s essays have appeared in Origins and Women and Social Movements in Modern Empire.
