What is intersectionality? And how does that connect with African American Women and the Struggle for Equality?

Voiced by Black feminist YouTuber Jouelzy and lawyer and civil rights activist Kimberlé Crenshaw, this Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) video for older grades and grownups introduces intersectionality.

Learn how social identities like gender, race, class, caste, sexuality, religion, disability, physical appearance, height, etc., can be “both empowering and oppressing,” and how more than one “can combine to create even more harm.”

intersectionality, an animated metaphor
The animation-filled video also introduces champions throughout America’s continued journey toward justice. From NMAAHC:

African American women have always been part of the African American struggle for full equality. Learn how early freedom fighters like Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Anna Julia Cooper fought against multiple oppressions.
