Follow Friday: Dr. Alexis P. Gumbs

By Mali Collins

All feminists have those who they consider their foremothers: Gloria Steinem, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sourjourner Truth, bell hooks, Donna Haraway, Betty Friedan, Simone de Beauvoir, Audre Lorde, Angela Davis, and many, many more. But the new wave of feminist scholarship, and scholar activists is booming, and many people are already paving the way for aspiring scholars like myself.  For Follow Friday, I suggest you check out Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumb’s website and publications: She has her finger on the pulse of contemporary black feminist debates and is someone we will be teaching in our classrooms.
