A Conversation With Demita Frazier: Founding Member of Combahee River Collective
with Dr. Barbara Ransby, Director of the Social Justice Initiative
and Prof. Moya Bailey, Northwestern University
Demita Frazier, JD, is a co-founder of the Black radical feminist Combahee River Collective, and a co-author of the Combahee River Collective Statement, considered a ground-breaking Black feminist treatise that introduced the innovative concept of intersectionality and has, since its publication in 1977, laid the foundation for the emergence and development of global Black feminist movements.
Moya Bailey is an associate professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University. Her work focuses on marginalized groups’ use of digital media to promote social justice, and she is interested in how race, gender, and sexuality are represented in media and medicine. She is the digital alchemist for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network and the Board President of Allied Media Projects, a Detroit-based movement media organization that supports an ever-growing network of activists and organizers. She is a co-author of #HashtagActivism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice (MIT Press, 2020) and is the author of Misogynoir Transformed: Black Women’s Digital Resistance (New York University Press, 2021). She was an MLK Visiting Scholar at MIT for the 2020–2021 academic year.
