Episode Info:

Treva Lindsey, author of Colored No More: Reinventing Black Womanhood in Washington, discusses the myths told about black women, as well as stories about American nationhood which work to privilege whiteness and marginalize minorities. An eloquent anti-violence advocate, Lindsey discusses the fight over representations of black women, including trans women, and she explains how online campaigns like #sayhername and #metoo are changing the terrain in the effort to demand justice and change in how black women are policed. Lindsey also speaks on allyship, and how we might build a sturdy table for all.
