Jennifer L. Morgan

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter focuses on Jennifer L. Morgan's freshman year at Oberlin College, which coincided with a nearly volcanic outpouring of written work by black feminists. Like many of her generation, Morgan felt as though something elusive and profound had slipped through her fingers by virtue of having been born a bit too late. She clung to the story of her parents finding each other in the crowds during the March on Washington in the summer before they married, and worried that her attendance at the “No Nukes” and “U.S. out of Central America” rallies was little more than a weak echo of something far more real. Morgan was looking for something in the here and now—the desire to be caught up in something important was, after all, precisely what had propelled her to Oberlin in the first place.
