Black Women Have Theorized Everything
HowlRound: The conversation below is between two Black feminist cultural producers. We, Sola Bamis and Tia-Simone Gardner, read and worked through the ideas in Lorraine Hansberry’s The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window (1963) and Lynn Nottage’s Sweat (2017). What we hope is that the love we have for these two artists structures the conversation and critiques that we had of their work, and also that the love and respect we have for each other as Black feminist artists and intellectuals is made clear.
