In this article, we offer Black Girl Cartography as a practice that centers the lives of Black girls and women and the mapping of ‘black girl stories’ as an educative tool. To illustrate the utility of Black girl Cartography in our work, we used an autoethnographic approach to draw upon our experiences in a graduate level English course centered around Black women’s autobiographies and activism (Butler, T. T. 2018b. ENG 826 [Course Syllabus]. Michigan State University). In doing so, we asked the following research question: How can Black Girl Cartography be used as an educative tool for Black girls and Black girl researchers?.
