Kimberlé Crenshaw In Conversation
Kimberlé Crenshaw coined the term ‘Intersectionality’ in 1989, and with the #SayHerName campaign she fights for the forgotten women who have died at the hands of police. At a time where the world grapples to answer the ongoing call for the Black Lives Matter movement, and we see the Black community disproportionately impacted by Covid 19, Kimberlé Crenshaw joined us at WOW to share her story, ideas, passions and campaigns - and the changes she wants to see.
