March 3, 2020 - Kimberlé Crenshaw Shares Support for Warren


Kimberlé Crenshaw, the scholar responsible for the term and concept of “intersectionality,” tweets that she cast her ballot on Super Tuesday for Warren, explaining: “I voted for @ewarren today b/c she listens to Black women, understands that ‘Economic justice has not ever been sufficient to ensure racial justice,’ admits mistakes, is a tough broad, and b/c we now see how not having a leader w/ a plan costs lives.” Warren responds: “Thank you, @sandylocks. Your pioneering of the intersectional framework and your powerful voice have driven groundbreaking work. I’m deeply humbled by your vote today, and I will proudly fight with you for racial, gender, and economic justice.” This is exemplary of Warren’s support among prominent Black scholars and activists, while Warren has struggled among Black voters generally in the primaries to date.
