Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Rooted in the Black feminist tradition, this kitchen table talk brings together scholars who are doing work in the name of liberation. We begin by naming people who ground us in our beings and our work, and from these offerings, we discuss the power of love in the fight for liberation with the hopes of cultivating educational spaces for Black students where they feel loved, seen, validated, and heard. Furthermore, the disruption of the ways knowledge is circulated and produced in the academy was profound in our dialogue of people and organizations that are doing liberatory work centering Black youth for educational justice. We conclude with an exclamation of the necessity of radical self-care through narratives honoring ourselves and the communities in which we serve.
