Scroll down to access links and other resources mentioned in Episode 32- “The Case of Critical Race Feminism.”
In this episode, Dr. Nix-Stevenson talks about self-love and self-care as liberatory practices. She provides a five-part construct on critical race feminism (outlined in the Key Points section below). She also talks about the bleeding nature of the subthemes within critical race theory: critical feminism, feminism, jurisprudence, and critical legal studies.
I met Dr. Nix-Stevenson on Twitter but much of our engagement has been on Facebook where we are both Facebook friends and members of a Facebook group committed to women of color who are in higher education. As with several informants on the ESHpodcast, I felt a deep kinship when talking with her. Like me, she has her feet in K12 education and in the academy (as relating to her research). She is committed to the active work of being whole and she thinks critically about social communities on and offline.
In the close out of the call, I talk about the psychological burden of intersectionality (as discussed by Audre Lorde) and the individual nature in which race and gender are placed in our identity stack.
