Ain't Nobody Got Time for That: Anti-Black Girl Violence in the Era of #SayHerName
Lindsey, Treva B.
Urban Education, v53 n2 p162-175 Feb 2018
In the era of #BlackLivesMatter, anti-Black state violence is a primary focus. From police brutality to the Flint Water Crisis, organizers within the Movement for Black Lives draw important connections between various sites of racial injustice as experienced by people of African descent in the United States. One of the many sites where anti-Black violence and victimization occurs is in our classrooms. This article explores the classroom as a site of racial-gender terror for Black girls. The classroom is far too often an anti-Black girl space.
