Confronting Our Own Complicity: Complexities and Tensions of a Critical Race Feminista Praxis in Higher Education During the Movement for Black Lives
Contribution to Book
This chapter discusses critical race feminista praxis, one of the many theoretical and practical approaches that exist among CRT scholars who merge Critical Race Theory (CRT) with other theoretical orientations. Critical race counterstories then function as a way to center the narratives of the multiply marginalized. Juanita pulled her car into the parking lot of a Mediterranean restaurant, the site of the first Women of Color faculty gathering of the academic year. Juanita, a non-Black Chicana feminist and new visiting lecturer at a predominantly white private institution in a conservative town in Texas, was anxious but eager to meet other women of color on campus. In this sense, people as non-Black Chicanx/Latinx must be ready to engage with that reality and formulate new possibilities, ones that people argue people are in the process of fully exploring ourselves.
