Is ‘Modern Love’ Only for White Women? - ZORA
After watching the show, I cried too—longer and harder than I care to admit. But I cried because, as a Black woman, the show made me feel anything but romantic. With its total exclusion of Black, brown, and Indigenous women as love interests, I felt invisible and dehumanized. Modern Love was incredibly traumatizing to watch, reminding me of all the gendered violence and dismissal I’ve faced in my life.

Remembering Jennifer Lopez's N-Word Controversy, 15 Years Later | Genius
Still, although J. Lo wasn’t responsible for wedging “nigga” into the lyrics, she proceeded to sing them without caution—it’d be the last time she’d do so on a record. In fact, Lopez’s 2014 single—which was written by Tinashe—was originally titled “I Luh Ya Nigga.” When J. Lo recorded it, it was renamed “I Luh Ya Papi”—she wasn’t making the same mistake twice.

How We Get Free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective
"If Black women were free, it would mean that everyone else would have to be free." —Combahee River Collective Statement

Winner of the 2018 Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Nonfiction

The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles.

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor writes on Black politics, social movements, and racial inequality in the United States. Her book From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation won the 2016 Lannan Cultural Freedom Award for an Especially Notable Book. Her articles have been published in Souls: A Critical Journal of Black Politics, Culture and Society, Jacobin, New Politics, The Guardian, In These Times, Black Agenda Report, Ms., International Socialist Review, and other publications. Taylor is Assistant Professor in the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University.

If we want our biblical interpretation—and the way we live it out—to come into alignment with the fullness of who Christ is, we need new lenses.

Broderick Greer on Twitter: "We can never overstate the surprise Oppression Voyeurs who thirst for us to say, “Our childhoods were horrible. We did nothing but run from police every day.” Be complex. Disrupt their narratives with joy."
