A joint book release celebrating E. Patrick Johnson's Black. Queer. Southern. Women: An Oral History and Jennifer Nash's Black Feminism Reimagined: After Intersectionality will take place Thursday, Jan. 31, at Women & Children First, 5233 N. Clark St., at 7 p.m.
Johnson's Black. Queer. Southern. Women. is drawn from the life narratives of more than 70 African-American queer Southern women. Nash's Black Feminism Reimagined outlines how women's studies has elevated intersectionality to the discipline's primary program-building initiative and casts intersectionality as a threat to feminism's coherence.
