Intersectionality and Critical Race Parenting
DePouw, Christin
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v31 n1 p55-69 2018
This conceptual article employs critical race theory (CRT) as a theoretical framework to explore the importance of intersectionality in critical race parenting. In particular, I focus on intersectionality to understand better how Whiteness and racial power play out in intimate relationships within the family, particularly between White parents and family members of color. Through autoethnography, I use my own experiences as a White parent in a multiracial family to argue for an intersectional approach to ParentCrit that "centers the uniqueness of racial oppression" as well as the myriad ways in which Whiteness is socially constructed within social relations.
