Black Feminism Will Save US All

Black feminismholds that the experience of black women give rise to a particular understanding of their position in relation tosexism, class oppression, andracism.The experience of being a black woman, it maintains, cannot be grasped in terms of being black or of being a woman, but must be elucidated viaintersectionality. A black feminist lens in the United States was first employed by black women to make sense of howwhite supremacyandpatriarchyinteracted to inform the particular experiences of enslaved black women. Black activists and intellectuals formed organizations such as theNational Association of Coloured Women(NACW) and theNational Council of Negro Women(NCNW).Black feminism rose to prominence in the 1960s, as thecivil rights movementexcluded women from leadership positions, and the mainstreamfeminist movementlargely focused its agenda on issues that predominately impacted middle-class white women. From the 1970s to 1980s, black feminists formed groups that addressed the role of black women inblack nationalism,gay liberation, andsecond-wave feminism. In the 1990s, theAnita Hill controversybrought black feminism into the mainstream. Black feminist theories reached a wider audience in the 2010s, as a result of social-media advocacy. via Wikipedia --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/gritandgrace/support

Black Feminism Will Save US All

Ayesha:To Be Young, Anxious, Female and Black.

A comment Ayesha Curry made on Monday's episode ofRed Table Talkhas made her the subject of endless memes and tweets — both in criticism and in support. The fallout from her interview with the women ofRed Table Talkcame in response to an admission she made of feeling insecure about the disproportionate attention she receives from men against the attention her husband, NBA star Steph Curry, receives from women. This Episode touches on the intersections Light-skinned Privilege, Colorism, Classism, Sexism and Racism. We navigate how the upholding of Black Female Gender Tropes makes it difficult for Black Women to share insecurity and vulnerability without being consumed by Whiteness or lameness in the process. If you have Anxiety please reach out to a Counselor, Therapist or Licensed Medical Professional. The social commentary here is in no way meant to substitute a medical service. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/gritandgrace/support
