Listen. Subscribe! Support us here.

There are currently fewer than 30 Black women full professors in the UK…in any discipline. If you know Angela Davis and Kimberle Crenshaw, do you also know about Gail Lewis and Olive Morris? PhDiva Xine interviews Jade Bentil, a historian of Black British women’s activism, and Paulette Williams, who heads initiatives to support current and aspiring Black academics. Jade and Paulette discuss staying critical of the “British” in Black British feminism, family oral histories, and the co-optation of Black studies by white saviours and colonial institutions.
