Panel Discussion: The Crunk Feminist Collection
Featuring editors Robin M. Boylorn, Brittney C. Cooper, and Susana M. Morris
Moderated by Jamilah Lemieux
For the members of the Crunk Feminist Collective, their academic day jobs were lacking in conversations they actually wanted to have: relevant, real conversations about how race and gender politics intersect with pop culture and current events. To address this void, they started a blog. Now with an annual readership of nearly one million, their posts foster dialogue about activist methods, intersectionality, and sisterhood. With the publication of their new essay collection, the Crunk Feminist Collective tackles life stuck between loving hip hop and ratchet culture while hating patriarchy, misogyny, and sexism. The book’s distinguished editors take the stage at Greenlight for a discussion moderated by Jamilah Lemieux about the book, the project, and the increasing relevance and necessity of their work.
