I also enjoy experimenting with media and lyrical texts to help students understand the relevance and application of feminist theories. I am exploring the following in the classroom:

Issa Rae’s “Insecure”

“Bessie” HBO movie

“The Shop” HBO series

“Surviving R. Kelly” Lifetime series

“The Foxy Five” YouTube series

Billy Porter’s “Pose” Netflix series

“Queen Sugar” Oprah Winfrey Network

Solange Knowles’ “When I Get Home”

Beyonce Knowles’ “Homecoming”
