I was honored to be invited to be a guest lecturer for a Gender & Diversity course at Murray State University.
I briefly talk about activism by Black American women/feminists Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Shirley Chisolm, the Combahee River Collective, Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, and more. I discuss the denial of Black women’s womanhood and how that has prompted Black women to focus more on intersectional feminism and amplify our own voices. I wrap up with a brief spotlight on online activism and how social media helps fuel modern activism.
It’s about 32 minutes and I hope you enjoy it.
If you’re interested in having me come to your school to lecture, host a workshop, participate in a panel, or give a keynote speech, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org for booking fees.
I was honored to join the brothers at Negroes With A Podcast for this episode. It was a lot of fun and the discussion was great.
From their site:
This week’s episode features @FeministaJones as a special guest podcaster. This week, @fivefifths discusses issues around Charles Barkley and his statements about Black success, @RealGoesRight connects these statements to the “New Black” phenonmenon and a battle between Stacey Dash and Crystal Wright, @BrazenlyVirile discusses recent incidents involving the beating of Senegalese students related to Ebola, @FeministaJones leads an amazing discussion on street harassment involving the recent viral video and the #YouOkSis? campaign. The week’s barbershop talk is about lesbian porn and reactions to different kinds of porn. NSFW.
