Intersections On the Border Crossings of Black Women's Standpoints
In our local communities people are suffering from exploitation, oppression, and social injustice. Places
for sharing one another's differences are scarce. Therefore, we are facing a crisis where hearts and minds
remain closed to pains and joys of social diversity. All the while, multiple standpoints shape people's
experiences in daily lives within our local communities. How we choose to value or de-value these
standpoints determines individual oppression or privilege. Thus, creating spaces for border crossing
experiences on the feminist terrain promote new understandings of our histories and futures as women
living in interlocking systems of oppression.
