Female, Black, early 40's
Margaret Wooten got her degree in Education from the University of California. She had a minor in African American studies. Margaret Wooten subscribed to an approach of teaching Black students to embrace the identities imposed on them by the White oppressors. While she believed in teaching proper English, she saw this as a sort of second language for Black kids. She promotes their hip-hop culture and its radical expressions and esteems it as a rebellion against the establishment. Wooten, believes that if Blacks continue to protest and assert their counter culture identity, White America would be forced to accept them. She strongly rebelled against her Christian upbringing, esteeming it as having been an outdated tool for controlling the masses. She relied on her intellect and those of others who had been "awakened" by the socialist, liberal mindset to be the collective expression of a practical God. She found the Communist Manifesto to be more of a Bible to her than what King James had to say. Margaret Wooten, lives happily with her lesbian partner. She also, encourages androgyny and gender fluidity among the students at her school. She is on a mission to revolutionize the old American way of life and once and for all bring "freedom" (as she sees it) to all people.
