In this virtual roundtable organized by me, Kathryn Buford, and Suey Park, we invited women of color to discuss coming together to consider #solidarity and feminisms across communities of color, as well as recent issues and challenges we face as women of color dealing with racism, colorism, classism, sexism, heterosexism/homophobia, and transphobia.  What does solidarity mean to us, and what does feminism mean to us? How do we build a united front ready and able to support each other across cultural communities?

Kathryn is a writer, and sociology PhD student at University of Maryland, College Park. Her current research explores social entrepreneurship, women’s art and emancipatory knowledge across the African diaspora. 

Suey Park is a free-lance writer from Chicago who now lives in Colorado. She is the organizer behind the Twitter hashtag #NotYourAsianSidekick.

Cherie Ann Turpin is a writer and an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of the District of Columbia.
