Blackness and womanhood; the two do not have to be mutually exclusive but time and time again it seems as if the black woman is left in an epistemological battle between two significant aspects of her identity. To be black and be a woman is to be constantly aware of how each identity marker informs the other. The fight for racial justice has consistently brought this multiplicity of identities to the forefront of its activists, fighters, and supporters who have been clouded by the singular lens of their blackness. In a fight that has seen the importance of the black woman figure, it proves interesting to think about how black liberation movements sometimes falter in adequately handling the various intersections of identity.
