Join CULTURAL CONVERSATIONS as we reflect on the Baltimore riots, the role a Black Mother played in becoming an iconic figure in media and in community. We welcome Dr. Robin Boylorn, educator, writer, with Crunk Feminist Collective, to the show. Dr. Boylorn will talk about her article "A Black Mother's Love (or What Love Looks Like in Public)", which reflected on the actions of the Baltimore Mother of the Year and society's reaction and understanding of the role Black Mothers must take in leadership.
Robin M. Boylorn, Ph.D., ?earned her doctorate in 2009 from University of South Florida. Currently she is Assistant Professor of Interpersonal and Intercultural Communication at the University of Alabama where she teaches and writes about issues of social identity and diversity, focusing primarily on the lived experiences of black women. Boylorn's work concentrates on ways of documenting marginalized lives and making them accessible and available to wide audiences. She seeks to give voice to silenced experiences and offer strategies for talking about and across difference (in its many manifestations).
