Practicing Love: Black Feminism, Love-Politics, and Post-Intersectionality

Jennifer Christine Nash

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article examines the consolidation of love into a black feminist politics during secondwave feminism. By reading love-politics as both a practice of the self and a nonidentitarian strategy for constructing political communities, I argue that black feminism's love-politics suggests a way of doing politics that transcends the pitfalls of identity politics, particularly intersectionality.
