Beyond Intersectionality

Beyond Intersectionality

Theorizing Interconnectivity with/in This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color

(p.29) Chapter One Beyond Intersectionality
Transformation Now!

AnaLouise Keating

University of Illinois Press

This chapter analyzes the overlooked theoretical contributions of This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, underscoring the importance of women-of-colors theorizing while inviting readers to go beyond intersectional frameworks. A groundbreaking, multigenre collection of writings, This Bridge Called My Back has become an iconic text in feminist scholarship and women's and gender studies (WGS) curriculum. This chapter argues that This Bridge Called My Back offers social-justice actors and scholars of all colors innovative tools and theoretical contributions that we still need to learn from, expand on, and implement in our scholarship, teaching, and other forms of activism. The chapter also offers an alternative perspective from those who claim that This Bridge represents a “safe space” exclusively for women of colors.

Keywords:   This Bridge Called My Back, women-of-colors theorizing, interconnectivity, women of colors, intersectional frameworks
